Meet our Dietician

​Introducing Cosentino’s Markets Dietician - Rebecca McConville M.S., R.D., L.D., C.S.S.D.

RMcConvilleOver the past few years Rebecca has dedicated much of her time to talk to the UMKC’s Athletic Performance Team’s student- athletes; providing teams and individuals with informative presentations about the importance of nutrition on their athletic performance. Rebecca has met with many of the teams and has given them different ideas of what foods and drinks are best to consume for their particular sport. Men’s Basketball, Women’s Golf, and Women’s Soccer have each had a walk-through with Rebecca at Cosentino’s Brookside Market to learn the benefits of eating fresh foods. After arriving at the stores, they started in the produce section, where most of their shopping should be done. Rebecca walked them through every section of the store, pointing out things that the student-athletes should look for as well as things to steer clear from. Charter Lawson, freshman on the Women’s Golf team, said, “I learned that different colors effect overall health, and don’t always believe what is on the front of the box or packaging.” Assistant Strength and Conditioning Coach, Jeanne Rankin, added, “Rebecca helped the student-athletes decipher what is actually healthy as opposed to what just claims to be healthy. I think the best advice Rebecca gave was that you should shop the perimeters when you go to the grocery store”. In addition to answering your questions about food, ingredients, health and nutrition, Rebecca will also offer scheduled events at both Market locations. Be sure to sign up early as these classes are expected to fill quickly.
