Be ready for holidays and learn to shop healthy at supermarket tour 

Thursday, November 01, 2012 

Georgetown, S.C. -- Grocery shopping is fraught with stress, thanks to soaring food prices and all those holiday temptations. Toss in the challenge of picking foods with a healthy balance of carbs, fiber and fat, and it’s enough to send us straight to the eggnog. 

Take the free Supermarket Tours led by Georgetown Hospital System dietitians instead. The hour-long tour is set for 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 8, at the Food Lion in Pawleys Island.

 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.
