Pollock Communications and leading nutrition trade magazine, Today’s Dietitian, released the results of their fifth annual “What’s Trending in Nutrition“ national food trend survey, which polled over 1,700 registered dietitians (RDs) across the country on the upcoming year’s big trends in food and eating. This year overall, results reveal a decline in consumers’ interest in dieting. Instead, many are choosing clean and mindful eating as their path to healthier living. For the last five years, the “What’s Trending in Nutrition” survey has been a leader in identifying and tracking the next significant trends in food for the upcoming year including what foods are topping the coveted Top 10 Superfoods list.
