Did you know that you can get FREE dietician tours at your local Market Street? Their registered dietitians offer in-store tours for several topics, including food allergies, heart health, diabetes, healthy eating 101, and children’s tours. Each tour will take you through the store and shows you how to make the best choices to support your health.
You can also schedule a private tour for group, school or club presentations. Just head over HERE to make a presentation request. This would be great for a Girl Scout troop, senior living excursion, or extended family dealing with an allergy/health condition such as Celiac disease or diabetes – get the WHOLE family involved!
I had a friend whose daughter was diagnosed with Celiac disease at the age of 10. She decided to get herself and son tested was well, and they found out they were gluten intolerant. She arranged a dietician tour with Market Street for the extended family so that everyone could be educated on their new dietary lifestyle. What an incredible tool!
