Warm weather, evenings grilling out, nights around a bonfire: It feels like summer is just around the corner. On this episode of Across the Table, we cover how to make healthy choices for your family this summer with a nutritious salad recipe for those summer nights on the grill.
Hear from Charlotte, a registered dietician, who gives us her advice for how to decipher those confusing food labels and choose the best food for your family. She breaks down what you need to know about organic foods and sustainability. Plus, she shares her advice about GMO foods.
“It’s understandable that, with so many sources of information, it can be difficult to sort through it all and know what choice to make,” said Charlotte. “As a farmer, I know that GMO technology allows us to be more sustainable. We can raise more crops with less fuel and pesticides. As a dietician, I know credible information indicates that GMOs are safe and have been for the 20 years we’ve used them. I encourage you to feel comfortable choosing any food in the grocery store without being concerned about whether it’s a GMO product or not.”
