About this Webinar
It’s only been just over a year and a half since COVID-19 disrupted lives and businesses, many of our clients are now working from home and are cooking at home more so than ever before. As a result of people logging more hours in the kitchen, grocery retailers are seeing shopping habits shift to accommodate different types of cooking and to keep up with the emerging needs. Join the Loblaw's dietitian team to learn more about these latest food trends and product offerings for your clients.

In this webinar, you will learn :

- A brief overview of gut health and plant-based eating, as well as a review of the different product offerings that you can recommend to your clients. (eg. lower sugar kombucha, water kefir, dairy free kefir, new probiotic yogurts, ready-to-eat "faux meat" products, egg alternatives, dairy-free yogurts, and much more!)

- A review of healthy convenience products for quick and easy meal solutions (eg. "not so bad" frozen meals, ready to heat soups/chilis, and much more!)

- A run through of healthy snack options in the snack and granola bar aisle (eg. roasted legumes, cheese crisps, ready to eat balanced snack kits, healthier "pop" alternatives, and much more!)

This workshop will include a hands-on food demo portion on plant-based recipes that you and your clients will love!
