Grocery Store Tour


On September 1st, 2016, the Center for Diabetes and Nutrition hosted their first grocery store tour at the Kingsbrook Crossing Giant located on New Design Road. This event was offered as part of the Center’s free diabetes support group, which meets on the first Thursday of every month from 6-7pm at the Crestwood Conference Center. Seventeen people attended the tour, which was led by two Registered Dietitians, Fran Hawes and Joanna Eaton. On the tour, participants were guided through the store to find diabetes friendly options in each aisle. The tour highlighted healthy options in produce, dairy, the bread and cereal aisles, healthy snacks and more.
