Insights from Food Modeling Research: Putting the Thrifty Food Plan into Practice
Dietitians, researchers, and health professionals are invited to a webinar to learn what it takes to create an optimized, affordable, and nutrient-dense eating plan for patients and clients based on newly released research.

The Thrifty Food Plan (TFP) was updated and released on August 16, 2021. The TFP represents the cost of groceries needed to provide a healthy, budget-conscious diet for a family of four. With the updated TFP, USDA SNAP benefits will increase by 21%, meaning more access to affordable, nutrient-dense foods is possible.

However, given the new parameters of the TFP, much uncertainty remains regarding which food patterns or menu items provide optimal nutrition at an affordable cost while satisfying taste and cultural preferences.

With insights generated from menu modeling research, attendees will gain access to what it takes to put an optimized, affordable, and nutrient-dense eating plan into practice for their patients and clients.

Approved for 1 CPEU from the Commission on Dietetic Registration of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. This is an ethics-related CPE activity.

No cost to register.
