Nutritious food. Check.
Affordable ingredients. Check.
Meals your families will love. Check.
Starting January 12, Spectrum Health Gerber Memorial’s registered dietitians will lead free tours in local grocery stores with a simple goal: Helping families learn tips and tricks for buying nutritious food. In the 90-minute tour, the dietitians will demonstrate ways to shop efficiently and...
...within the family budget for foods that are appropriate for every healthy diet.
The tours are scheduled for:
January 19, 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m.
February 21, 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m.
“Grocery shopping for nutritious, affordable food your whole family will enjoy can be a challenge and that’s why we’re excited to lead free tours that can help families put together healthy, delicious meals,” said Emilie Klop, Gerber Memorial registered dietitian and one of two tour guides for the program. “The goal is to empower people so they can go grocery shopping for better health.”
Space for the tours is limited.
Interested individuals should sign up for this informative and useful grocery tour, by contacting: 231-924-3073 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The grocery tours start on time, and kick off inside Bill’s front entrance and Walmart’s north entrance.
“Eating nutritious food and drinking healthy beverages can help maintain overall wellness and fight against a range of chronic diseases, from diabetes to heart illness,” said Joshua Mueller, the other Gerber Memorial registered dietitian leading the tours. “We want to help share information and resources so families know what they’re buying at the store, how it fits with their diet goals and how to buy foods that can help them be and stay healthy.”
The average U.S. family spends about $100 a month on fast food, according to a 2014 study commissioned by market researchers OnePoll.com. Mueller said that equals 180 cups of fresh fruits and vegetables a month, or six cups per day. Mueller and Klop also said techniques such as using crock pots can help families save on time when preparing meals.
