Learn how to shop healthy at GHS supermarket tours

Tuesday, May 13, 2014

We may not be able to control grocery prices, but we can control what we spend, and knowing how to read nutrition labels is the first step in stretching food dollars and making healthier food choices. 

To help consumers decipher the numbers and understand what all those words on packaging labels mean, Georgetown Hospital System dietitians are leading two free supermarket tours Thursday, May 22, and Thursday, June 12.

The May 22 tour will take place at 5 p.m. at the Pawleys Island Food Lion, located at 9380 Ocean Highway and the South Causeway.

The June 12 tour is planned for the Murrells Inlet BI-LO, located at 4430 Highway 17. Participants at both tours will learn how to read labels, pick healthy snacks, shop on a budget and how marketing influences our food choices.

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