What's Foodsmart?

At Foodsmart, we work directly with your members to improve health outcomes and provide accessible, educational and affordable solutions to eating well. 

Members will work one on one with a registered dietitian to assess their needs and build a personalized meal plan to help them reach their goals. We'll consider chronic conditions, allergies, preferences, and household size and income to create the perfect meal plan for every member.

The meal plans can then be purchased and delivered right from the app with partners like Walmart+ or Instacart to help members save time and money.

Problems Facing Employers

Coming out of the pandemic, employers are presented with a new take on old challenges.

lineicons_turnover_greenmid

Employee Engagement is Low & Turnover is High

Employees face less work-life balance and feel disconnected from their workplace. Virtual burnout, longer work hours, and more stress are reducing satisfaction. Employers are challenged to reimagine their benefits to support employees in a hybrid or remote working model.

lineicons_foodinsecurity_greenmid

Addressing Food Insecurity & SDoH
As many employees rely on employer-sponsored health and wellness benefits, you have a responsibility to remove barriers and support your diverse employees to promote health equity.

Poor Health and Rising Medical Costs

60% of Americans suffer from at least one chronic disease. Poor employee health has an impact on workforce productivity, engagement, and motivation as well as increased healthcare costs due to increased medical care.

Frequently Asked Questions

We help your employees take control of their health by focusing on the foundation of good health: nutrition. Our approach of one-on-one visits with a registered dietitian combined with our easy-to-use app helps people make smarter, science-backed decisions about their eating habits. Our impact is proven with clinically validated, peer reviewed results:

  • 33% of members with obesity lose at least 5% of body weight
  • 39% of members with diabetes improve their blood sugar levels
  • 33% of members with hypertension achieve control of their blood pressure

As important as it is to offer great benefits, it’s equally as important that employees perceive their value. In addition to being impactful, Foodsmart is also widely enjoyed and highly recommended -- our telenutrition solution has an NPS score of >80, even higher than Amazon and Apple. In fact, in a recent example we found that employees at one of our customers who enrolled in Foodsmart were 11% more likely than non-Foodsmart members to maintain employment after a six month period. This could mean for our 20K live employer, a savings of $13M annually supported by Foodsmart.

What’s different about Foodsmart is our commitment to evidence-based, scientifically backed, methodologies to eating well. Our registered dietitians understand the whole person, and are able to provide personalized nutrition therapy based on their years of training. Other programs that utilize “health coaches” or “nutritionists” do not offer the same level of expertise that Foodsmart registered dietitians do. And with a Net Promoter Score of 86, it’s clear that our members find value in our tools and services.
