Learn how to shop healthy at GHS Supermarket Tours

Monday, April 22, 2013

 Georgetown, S.C. – Whether you’ve resolved to eat healthier or shed a few pounds before swimsuit season, reading nutrition labels can help you shop healthier and make wiser 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 May.

The first one is set for 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 7, at the Murrells Inlet Piggly Wiggly, at 4430 Highway 17 Bypass. A second tour is planned for 12:15 p.m. Wednesday, May 15, at the Georgetown Walmart, at 1310 North Fraser 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.
