Last but not least
Last but not least…

  • Any participant can see the RD!


  • People are more receptive to change when they like the person they’re working with.

  • They are more likely to say “yes” to people they like, and “no” to people they don’t like.

  • “The dietitian would love to visit with you and see your children.”

  • “Our dietitian loves working with families who struggle with a picky eater.”


  • “Many other families in your situation have found that their visit with the dietitian was helpful.”

  • “A mom I talked to yesterday told me about the dietitian and that she really helped her.”


  • “It sounds like you’ve tried almost everything to help your child. We can schedule you to see our dietitian, she has so many great tips and she may even have a solution you haven’t tried yet.”

Commitment consistency
Commitment & Consistency

  • “The dietitian will be looking forward to seeing you next month. What day is it again that you’ll be here?”


  • “The dietitian is only here a few days a week, so it takes a while to get an appointment. But when you meet with her, you will feel secure in knowing that you’re doing everything you can to help Jonny be the best he can be. She’s a real expert on what kids like to eat and what’s good for them.”


  • “There are only a few appointments with the dietitian each month, not everyone gets to meet with her”

  • “You don’t have to meet with her, but you may miss out on some great tips”

Take home messages
Take Home Messages

  • Every client, regardless of the risk code, will be offered the opportunity for RD services.
