Shop Smart for Back-to-School Snacks!

1-Be cart-smart!  Fill your shopping basket so that it mirrors a healthy meal plan, meaning about half fruits and vegetables, one quarter whole grains and one quarter lean protein.  Make some of the choices calcium-rich.

2-Save time with and avoid impulse purchases with a list; organize items on your list to correspond with the order you will travel the market for a faster trip.

3-Read food labels and packaging claims to ensure a healthy purchase.

4-Bend and stretch for a good deal!  Bargains or often on lower or higher shelves rather than at eye-level.

5-Use the freezer to avoid wasting fresh produce.

6-Shop the edges of the store for fresh foods but don’t miss healthy foods in the center aisles.
