    The Behind-the-Scenes of Power of Dietitians

    Nutritionalist. Food police. Dietician. Registered dietitian nutritionists endure a lot of misunderstandings about their job title and what they do. In this episode, we make it easy to understand the roles RDNs play in our daily lives, including working with patients in hospitals, engaging shoppers at the grocery store level, building the school lunch menu, influencing menus at chain restaurants and more. We discuss how the National Peanut Board promotes peanuts to this important group through exciting programs like Certified Peanut Pro, ambassadors, harvest tours, retail outreach, and what the future of the profession looks like. Our episode features RDNs Sherry Coleman Collins of NPB, Lyndi Wieand of Weis Markets and Rhea Napeek Bartlett from agency Fleishman Hillard, and chef Patrick McDonnell and Virginia peanut farmers Jeffrey and Stephanie Pope.

    Just when we were getting settled in with the target of millennials, a new generation has entered the scene—Gen Z! Young people born between 1997-2012 are included in this latest demographic.

We'll explore the key attributes of Gen Z, why they’re important to marketers and how a common love of peanut butter will bring the two youngest generations together. Our conversation features Ginny Lewis from Golin, Brendan Brannock a Gen Zer, Jeanne Cashman from Hampton Farms, and Arkansas peanut farmer Greg Baltz.
