Registered Dietitians provide in-store tours and nutrition education at grocery stores and retail food outlets throughout CT. Tour participants learn useful skills to help them when shopping for healthy foods.
Participants can learn how to select high quality and great tasting fruits and vegetables on a budget. Information about how to compare unit prices to get the best value from their food dollars is also available. In addition, participants learn how to read food labels, how to identify whole grains, low-fat dairy foods and lean proteins in accordance with the USDA MyPlate eating plan.
For participants who do not have transportation or when participants
have physical limitations that prohibit them from participating with the in-store tours, grocery store nutrition education sessions may alternatively be delivered at housing sites and community centers using videos and virtual tours originated from the grocery and food stores.
