Learn how to shop healthy at GHS supermarket tours 

Friday, September 14, 2012

Georgetown, S.C. – Soaring food prices are making grocery shopping stressful. 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 Good Humor Bars. 

Take the free Supermarket Tours led by Georgetown Hospital System dietitians instead. The hour-long tours are planned for Pawleys Island and Garden City in September.

The Pawleys Island Food Lion tour is set for 5:30 p.m. Sept. 20 at the Food Lion on Highway 17.

The Garden City tour will take place at noon Sept. 25 at the Kroger on 2939 Highway 17, 29576.

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.
