Enhancing Your Health and Life with Allison Kuhn – Director of Retail Nutrition Solutions at Kroger

“Food is at the center of all that we do”

In episode 6, Lori Taylor, founder of The Produce Moms, sits down with the Director of Retail Nutrition Solutions at Kroger, Allison Kuhn. Allison also has many accolades including the Top Woman in Grocery Rising Star Award, and she has also been recognized by Produce for Better Health Foundation as Dietician of the Year and a host of other distinguished honors and awards.

“We’re all about using food in the best possible way we can to enhance our health and our life”

One of Allison’s biggest recent projects has been developing and implementing the Kroger OptUP App. OptUP is helping shoppers simplify healthier shopping by providing easy-to-use nutrition scoring and recommendations based on what you’re buying today.

“Our goal at Kroger is to help people live a healthier life”

Your OptUP score lets you know how healthy your grocery purchases have been over the last eight weeks. You can also see how your purchases break down between high, medium and low scoring foods.

You can view nutrition scores from 1-100 for items you’ve recently bought in the Purchased section. Tap any product to view nutrition info and to add the product to your favorites for future shopping trips. Swipe left to add any item to your cart.

Their proprietary OptUp Analyzer™ provides personalized, better for you options to help you on your health and wellness journey.

Allison is helping Kroger change the way America eats! We hope you enjoy this episode and find new and innovative ways to eat more fresh produce.
