After talking Food Fads, Robyn Flipse, MS, MA, RDN shared the benefits of beef at the beef booth.
The sponsored session helped dispel the myths about food product labels, shared practical ways to promote their menu as a teaching tool and encouraged the audience to stand for science. Attendees were also intrigued to hear the differences in the new meat alternative burgers to a traditional beef burger, learning ways to share the many benefits a beef burger has to offer such as being nutrient-rich, a high-quality protein, and a 1-ingredient food.
“Don’t let food fads distract you from your objectives of doing what is best for your healthcare establishment and the needs of your patients and families,” Flipse commented.
This event was made possible by the Colorado Beef Council through funding to the beef checkoff’s NEBPI. For more information on the checkoff’s involvement, visit the NEBPI website, NEBPI Facebook page or contact Jennifer Orr firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Beef Checkoff Program was established as part of the 1985 Farm Bill. The checkoff assesses $1 per head on the sale of live domestic and imported cattle, in addition to a comparable assessment on imported beef and beef products. States may retain up to 50 cents on the dollar and forward the other 50 cents per head to the Cattlemen’s Beef Promotion and Research Board, which administers the national checkoff program, subject to USDA approval.
