Canned Food News - Canned Foods Are Sustainable Choice

MAY The Fork Be With You

It’s the merry month of May and people are starting to think about getting those spring and summer clothes out – which can often mean reining it in on food choices to trim that waist line and try to make healthier decisions. One way to control your food is to cook more at home. But your home-cooked meals are only as good as the ingredients you put in them; and that starts in the grocery store.

This month we asked two Retail Dietitians from County Markets out of the Midwest to share their favorite tips on how to maximize the benefits of the entire grocery store in order to reap the benefits of “all forms” of fruits, vegetables, beans, lean meats and seafood.

For those looking for more ideas to bring different foods from around the grocery store to their plates, tear off a page from the Canned Food Alliance's Retail Dietitian Toolkit, themed "Stocking a Healthy Pantry."

One of six total themes, this excerpt provides a turnkey in-store recipe demo, media segment or educational session for anyone who teaches consumers about ways to shop the entire grocery store, and about the benefits of key staples like canned fruits, vegetables, beans, lean meats and seafood. The theme includes a recipe, a sample tweet, talking points and a resource for teaching. Take a peek below.
