Healthful Eating Starts With Planned Shopping!

PLAN AHEAD

  • Plan meals for one week at a time.
  • Gather recipes and make a shopping list of the foods you will need as well as any staple foods you are running low on.
  • Shop as infrequently as possible, once a week for perishables, and once a month for staples

SHOP SMART

  • Review your weekly supermarket flyers to plan meals around food items on sale and to get menu ideas.
  • Make the most of seasonal produce which are usually at the best price and taste.
  • Allow extra time to read labels to ensure the products you buy are the most healthful choice.
  • Shop the perimeter of the store for the unprocessed foods such as fresh fruit, fresh vegetables, low fat dairy products, lean meat and poultry.

Schedule a personal supermarket tour with one of Valley Hospital’s registered dietitians to learn how to make healthy choices for you and your family.
