Recently a patient of ours asked for a recommendation on a good, well rounded book on nutrition. This had me thinking for some time, so I asked my good friend who is an RD (Registered Dietitian) with Ravitz Family Markets of Cherry Hill, NJ. She coached me up a bit on everything that ShopRite is doing to try and improve healthy eating by hosting health events and wellness talks. To find a schedule, you can follow this link: Shoprite.com – Health and Nutrition Events (please note the current schedule is set up for 2015 and should be updated shortly into the new year of 2016).
If you go to that link, you can find scheduled nutrition and wellness talks at many of our local locations here in South Jersey. ShopRite of Chews Landing Road (just up the road from our main office in Laurel Springs), ShopRite of Evesham Road (on the border of Marlton and Cherry Hill), ShopRite of Sewell, and even ShopRite of Somers Point, NJ (a few blocks from our office on Bay Ave in Somers Point). The wellness talks are hosted by an RD employed by ShopRite and can benefit anyone looking for ideas and tips on eating better.
In addition to the health and wellness events listed above, some ShopRite stores have started to adopt healthy cooking classes taught by their own Registered Dietitians. For the health conscious, we are offering Dietitians’ Selection Classes. ShopRite‘s in-store Registered Dietitians and chefs handpick each recipe with your health in mind. Our recipes make it easy for you to prepare healthy meals at home that include essential nutrients in your diet while still limiting the amount of total fat, saturated fat, trans fat, cholesterol and sodium.
