Food as medicine shapes nutrition research despite lack of coverage in nutrition programs

This partnership underscores the intersection between nutrition and healthcare. The food as medicine movement encompasses medically tailored meals, groceries and prescription plans, among others to address the growing epidemic of diet-related chronic diseases.

According to the Food is Medicine Coalition​, there have been 24 ongoing research studies since 2021 “demonstrating the impact of food and nutrition services on health and cost outcomes.”

The organization reported that 79% of the studies are focused on medically tailored meals (MTM) by registered dietician nutritionists (RDN), and suggests implementing MTM for Medicaid, Medicare and other federal healthcare programs.
