From Our Clients


We brought in the Nutrition on Demand team to help us with a rebranding project for one of our programs. Shelley and her team planned and implemented a comprehensive process that included targeted data gathering, key informant interviews, and information analysis to inform our rebrand goals and marketing needs. The amount and quality of the data exceeded our expectations, giving us valuable information useful beyond the rebrand. Their creative approach and suggestions helped our team come to a clear consensus for a powerful rebrand outcome.  The NOD team came to the table with enthusiasm, high energy and professionalism. We could not be more pleased with their approach, their work style and the project outcome. We would definitely use their services again!

Shelley Maniscalco and her team of professionals have supported the Food Marketing Institute’s (FMI) health and wellness program of work for more than three years.  The scope of projects range from research designing and writing best practice guides for implementing a family meals program in food retail, to revaluating and redesigning our family meals consumer website, to designing strategies and a stakeholder engagement plan to elevate the importance of family meals in the Dietary Guidelines for Americans.  All projects taken on by Nutrition on Demand are executed with the highest standards of quality and are delivered on time and on budget.

We have contracted Nutrition on Demand to represent the Food Marketing Institute (FMI) to key external stakeholders.  For the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics’ Food & Nutrition Conference & Exposition, the team helped us to brainstorm and plan our exhibit booth to promote National Family Meal Month to dietetic professionals.  Shelley and her team of registered dietitians also helped us staff the booth. Due to their exceptional outreach skills, we received almost 400 contacts for our program. Nutrition on Demand is an excellent resource for any organization looking to enhance their nutrition and health strategies and programs.
