Geisinger dietitians to offer healthy eating tour at Danville Weis Markets

DANVILLE, Pa. – March is National Nutrition Month and Geisinger’s clinical nutrition department has teamed up with Weis Markets in Danville to host an “Eat Right Your Way Every Day” tour on Wednesday, March 13, from 6 to 7:30 p.m.

 

The supermarket tour will incorporate the theme “Eat Right Your Way Every Day,” by using MyPlate to walk attendees through each food group that should be represented in their meals. The tour includes teaching shopping strategies, pointing out healthy food items, introducing new/unfamiliar food items and answering questions about puzzling foods. Before walking through the aisles, an instructor will classify what a “healthy” meal/snack consists of as well as identifying useful tools to use when meal planning. A review of healthy diet components, the major food groups and MyPlate will also be discussed.

 

All attendees will receive a Healthy Bites magazine, shopping pads, Weis coupons, a shopping essentials guide from Weis Markets along with a National Nutrition Month pen and nutritional information. At the conclusion of the program attendees have the chance to win a laminated MyPlate grocery tote and one of two $10 Weis gift cards.

 

To join the “Eat Right Your Way Every Day,” tour, contact Cory Williams at 570.271.6468 or cvwilliams@geisinger.edu.
