The Fitness Nutrition Specialist badge that our Storefront Staff and Customer Service are all required to hold is a scientifically grounded nutrition course! Why do we require our employees to take this certification program? It's simple, we're based on REAL, SCIENTIFICALLY VALIDATED NUTRITION and WEIGHT LOSS INFORMATION at Midwest Meals. This certification helps us give sound advice (within our scope of practice) and dispel nutrition FACTS from FADS.
There is 15 learning modules and the exam is a 100 question in depth nutrition analysis and each team member is required to successfully pass this certification at minimum. Many of our team members are also studying in the field of nutrition or exercise physiology.
