Other tips on boosting berry consumption are also helpful. Keri Glassman, a registered dietician and founder of the nutrition counseling and consulting practice A Nutritious Life, offers these suggestions:
- Inquire about clients’ diet and advise them on ways to incorporate more berries into their meals.
- Educate clients on the importance of healthy snacking and encourage berries as a snack.
- Use products that contain natural ingredients and real fruit extracts, and educate your clients about the products.
- If you feel your clients do not have a proper diet, refer them to a dietitian to learn more about eating right.
Also, encourage your clients to buy local berries whenever possible, as fruits and vegetables begin to lose nutrients as soon as they are picked. With a much shorter time between picking and consumption, local berries are the healthiest and most flavorful berries you can eat.
Be berry bold
Berries can make an important difference for you and your clients in the areas of skin care and in healthy, natural aging. Suggest your clients taste various berries they might not be familiar with, and educate them about skin care products that contain berry ingredients suited to their skin type and specific requirements.
Rewarding on many levels, a diet rich in berries and berry products could easily be called very berry good.
