Dietitians will discuss the importance of various foods and nutrients, the NuVal Nutritional Scoring System and how to eat healthy foods on a budget.

“Healthy eating starts at the grocery store,” Lori Hamilton, Food City’s director of healthy initiatives, said in a press release. “We want to empower customers to take control of their lives by making informed food choices when they shop in our stores. The shopping tours achieve this by letting our customers see firsthand how the food they purchase and consume can impact their lives.”
