What We’re Reading: “Eating Healthy With My Diabetes”

Earlier this year, we brought you news about SUPERVALU’s “Living Healthy With My Diabetes” Program. In addition to easier-to-read nutrition labels highlighting certain healthy characteristics of a product, SUPERVALU stores have launched the next phase of their program. Throughout this year, members of the SUPERVALU family (including Acme, Albertson’s, Cub, Farm Fresh, Jewel-Osco, Shaws, Shop ‘N Save, and Shoppers Pharmacy) will be offering a new program to help shoppers more easily navigate the supermarket. From now until December, stores will offer two-hour-long guided tours for interested customers. These tours will share practical meal-planning strategies and how to interpret nutrition labels, and they will include follow-up opportunities to speak with a pharmacist should you have further questions.

To find out more about this program, you can visit www.eatinghealthywithmydiabetes.com/. To find the store closest to you with this program, you can try the store locator on the top right of the page, which will also allow you to register for a tour of your choice.

    It is high time that supermarkets launch such helpful programs as these. It’s bad enough that we have to exercise full control on our cravings to make way for good diabetes management. Making trips to the supermarket often comes with risks: exposure to temptation when passing by the sweets or junk food aisles. Besides reading about good diabetes control practices, diabetics and their loved ones could benefit a lot through these programs that aim to better details the ins and outs of healthy eating and living.
