CHAPMANVILLE – The Logan County Diabetes Coalition will be at the Town and County Grocery on Tuesday, February 12 at 1:30 p.m.
The coalition will conduct a supermarket tour to show area families how to make healthy choices at the store on a limited budget. During the tour, dubbed Shopping Matters for Adults, participants will get plenty of hands-on practice as they learn how to compare unit prices, purchase fruits and vegetables on a budget, compare food labels, and pick out whole grains. Tour organizer Anise Nash and Dana Wright cited the growing need for families to learn how to make the best possible use of their resources when shopping for food in this difficulty economy.
Share Our Strength’s Cooking Matters®, nationally sponsored by the ConAgra Foods® Foundation and Walmart, developed Shopping Matters for Adults based on research showing that careful food shopping practices, such as price comparison and nutrition label use, are associated with measures of better dietary quality. The program aims to promote real changes to food shopping habits by creating a dynamic learning experience for participants.
