Mac-n-Mo’s Morselicious Treats are Ashley Koff Approved! The AKA stamp means “Yes, you can” and “Yes, you should.”
Koff is a registered dietitian (RD) who strives to make better nutrition a way of life for all. Koff is seen regularly in media outlets such as The Huffington Post, Good Morning America Health, E! News, O! The Oprah Magazine, Redbook and Natural Health magazines, and is the resident nutritionist for the CW’s “Shedding for the Wedding,” and the upcoming Lifetime networks “Love Handles.”
“Whether it’s a product, menu, recipe, or gadget, the AKA stamp confirms that it has been evaluated and approved by me, as a better quality and healthy choice. More specifically, it means that the product does not contain any nutrition “no, no’s,” (artificial stuff, too much of something, not enough of another…), its marketing message is truthful and it fits into a nutrition plan for optimal health,” Koff says.
“What it does not mean is that anyone paid me to evaluate or influence my decision, and it also does not mean that a product stays either approved or not approved forever – I am always re-evaluating products to follow updated marketing messages, ingredients, learning about sourcing methods, and focusing on truths in nutrition, not trends and fads.”
“I was thrilled to find Mac-n-Mo’s. The morsels are insanely delicious! Everyone in my family has always had a dreaded sweet tooth and this is a WONDERFUL alternative to all the sweetened snacks and treats out there. It is a great way for me to give my kids a treat without feeling like I am compromising on nutrition, which is so important to me. And being NON-GMO Project Verified is an added bonus which I LOVE!! Thank you Mac-N-Mo’s for your wonderful products and dedication to quality and clean ingredients!”
As a recovered “sweetaholic”, I am thrilled to have something wonderful like Mac N’ Mo’s Morsels! I can enjoy a delicious bite of wonderfulness without guilt, knowing that they are absolutely good for me. I love both flavors and keep them in my fridge and freezer at all times! Thanks, Mo, for giving people who want great taste combined with good health, a tasty treat to enjoy.
