Have you noticed that your local supermarket is putting special shelf tags on items to denote if they’re healthy or gluten free? My local grocery store, King Soopers, has special “No gluten” tags, which makes shopping for my mother-in-law so much easier.
Well, the East Coast based Stop & Shop Supermarket goes one step further by launching Healthy Ideas, a new on-shelf symbol that helps customers easily identify foods that fit into a healthy lifestyle. I love this idea because making healthier choices begins in the grocery store and it takes the guesswork out of making healthy food choices.
Stop & Shop has placed the Healthy Ideas symbol on more than 3,000 items and shelf tags throughout its stores. The symbol highlights foods that have less fat, saturated fat and sodium. It also helps to ensure that the foods we select include a healthful amount of at least one nutrient, such as fiber, whole grains, calcium and minerals.
Print out your shipping list on the Healthy Ideas website
Don’t have a Stop & Shop by you? Well, you can still visit their website for Healthy Ideas recipes like Microwave Vegetable Lasagna and Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms. What’s extremely cool about their website is that you can check off recipe ingredients you don’t have in stock at home and print out a shopping list to take to the store. I wish more recipe websites used this feature.
