Food Facts

Emily

Some exciting new things are happening at our stores! March is National Nutrition Month, which made it the perfect time to announce our new nutritional attribute program that you will now be able to find on your favorite grocery shelf tags. This new program is called Food Facts, a program that will better assist you in making more informed and nutritious grocery decisions when our team of dietitians aren’t in the aisles with you (we wish we could be everywhere at once!).

This new program is an addition to the Dietitian’s Choice program we launched last fall. As seen below, this new program will allow specific attributes (or characteristics) to be displayed on our shelf tags, with a total of 6 potential attributes to be chosen from. Because there is only room for 3 attributes at a time on our shelf tags (due to space), we have created a hierarchy in which these attributes are listed based on what we feel YOU, our guest would want to know. Don’t worry–Dietitian’s Choice is always first on the list to help you make more nutritious decisions!

  • Dietitian’s Choice
  • Organic
  • Gluten Free
  • Low Sodium
  • Whole Grain
  • Heart Healthy

You will now see several thousand items in your favorite Coborn’s, Cash Wise and Marketplace Foods locations that have this new shelf tag. We would love to hear how our new Food Facts program is helping you make more informed food choices!

Healthy and Happy Eating,

For those of you who are starting off 2018 with goals related to health & wellness, kudos to you! It’s a perfect time of year to get into a new routine. As far as better nutrition, just remember that it’s up to you to purchase good items at the store and eat your meals and snacks throughout the day to prevent yourself from getting too hungry!

The biggest struggle for individuals seems to be meal planning. Typically, dinner is the hardest for most families. With activities in the evening and coordinating when everyone will be home, planning dinner can be difficult. Others may struggle planning for dinner if they are cooking for just 1 or 2 people as well. Continue reading

Hello! I’m Emily, one of your newest Supermarket Registered Dietitians here at Coborn’s! I’m a self-proclaimed foodie and love breaking down the facts for you on the latest nutrition trends. This month’s topic: to juice or not to juice. While juicing is gaining popularity among foodies and health enthusiasts alike, as a Registered Dietitian, I’m leery about recommending this health trend. What can be so wrong with eating your days’ worth of fruits and veggies in one sitting? It encourages consumption of these nutrient powerhouses, right? This is true, however, there’s one important thing missing here: fiber. Continue reading
