How Our Agents Of Change Tackle Every Angle of Nutrition
Improving the eating habits of America’s children is no easy task, but these change agents are here to help.
In today’s fast-paced world, we know it’s easy to fall into unhealthy eating habits — which too often also affect our children. Thankfully, there are many Registered Dietitian Nutritionists (RDNs) helping change our eating habits for the better. Unilever is honoring the hard work of these RDNs — who are “Agents of Change” in their communities — as just one of many ways we’re striving to improve nutrition.
Unilever is focused on improving health and well-being, thanks to our guiding business blueprint, the Unilever Sustainable Living Plan. We see the Agents of Change program as a great opportunity to encourage households everywhere to eat deliciously, nutritiously and sustainably through education and helpful recipes.
Meet Some Agents of Change:
Agents Of Change like these from our 2015 class are all helping the cause in their own personalized ways:
Zachari Breeding has been in the food service industry since he was barely a teenager, and is currently the owner of a company called The Sage, which focuses on nutrition consultation and catering. Breeding says that in order to bring change to our country, we should, “Redefine the traditional roles dietitians have always played in health care. Integrate cooking, outreach and education.” Breeding is also the chair of the Latinos and Hispanics in Dietetics and Nutrition.
Sharon Palmer is a registered dietitian, food and nutrition writer, and plant-based nutrition expert who posts recipes and heath information on The Plant-Powered Blog. Her site focuses on the benefits of a plant-based diet like how consuming less meat can be better for the environment. Vegetarian or not, we know you don’t need to sacrifice flavor for meatless meals.
Carlene Thomas is a dietitian nutritionist and entrepreneurial content creator. Her stunning blog Healthfully Ever After has healthy recipes aimed towards women for everything from snacks to smoothies to desserts. Her thoughts on wellness are also inspiring: “Be comfortable with being different, and strong enough to continue when others doubt you. Change moves us forward.”
We know we can’t achieve our mission of improving nutrition alone. While we’re dedicated to creating more nutritious foods, Agents of Change are helping spread the word by educating people everywhere about healthier eating.
But food also needs to be sustainable and accessible as well as healthy. That’s why we are doing everything we can to help, from promoting sustainable farming practices to providing easy recipes to create nutritious dishes. We want to create a healthier world for you and your family as well as a brighter future for your children.
