Trinity Health Outpatient Nutrition Services will lead a grocery tour for people affected by diabetes Tuesday, March 12, from 6 to 7 p.m. at MarketPlace Foods, 1930 South Broadway.
Participants are instructed to meet at the east entrance of MarketPlace Foods, near the deli. Space is limited. RSVP is requested by calling 857-5268.
“Eating healthy is one of the keys to achieving good glucose control, yet finding the right options at the supermarket can be overwhelming,” Cole said. “This tour is for people with diabetes, their friends and family members, or anyone interested in understanding food labels and making the best food choices to meet the nutritional needs of you or a loved one.”
The hour-long tour will include an aisle-by-aisle trip through the store, with tips on understanding food labels and making healthier meal choices to help manage diabetes.
The American Diabetes Association states that diabetes affects nearly 30 million children and adults in the U.S. or nearly 10% of the population. Another 86 million Americans have pre-diabetes or are at risk for developing Type 2 diabetes.
