Learn how to shop healthy at GHS Supermarket Tours

Tuesday, September 24, 2013

Georgetown, S.C. – Even though we can’t control grocery prices, we can control what we buy, and knowing how to read nutrition labels is the first step in stretching food dollars while making healthier food choices. 

But sometimes packaging information can be a little confusing. To help consumers decipher the numbers and understand what all those words mean, Georgetown Hospital System dietitians are leading two free Supermarket Tours in October.

The first one is set for 5 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 2, at the Pawleys Island Food Lion on Highway 17 and the South Causeway. A second tour is planned for 5 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 29, at the Georgetown Walmart on South Frasier St.

Participants will learn how to read labels and ingredients, pick healthy snacks, shop on a budget and how marketing influences our food choices.

Space is limited, so contact 843-520-8288 to register.
