Bashas' Launches New 'Eat Smart' Program
The Eat Smart program consists of:
-- Colored nutrition shelf tags in every aisle of the store that identify whether a food is a "healthier option," is "heart healthy," has "low sodium," is "calcium rich," has "reduced sugar" or is an "immune booster";
-- A free "Eat Smart" newsletter, featuring nutritional foods and recipes;
-- Free Eat Smart nutritional cards, with healthy eating tips and shopping lists;
-- Free monthly Eat Smart healthy shopping tours and special events at Bashas' stores, beginning in February; and
- A yearlong, designated Eat Smart end cap display in stores, featuring healthy products.
Bashas' is celebrating the launch of the new program with a "Healthy Kitchen Makeover" contest. Adults 18 years of age or older are invited to submit photos of their refrigerator, freezer and/or kitchen pantry, along with a 200-word-or-less essay explaining why they need a healthy food makeover. Up to three winners will receive a $500 gift card from Bashas', which will be used as part of a one-on-one healthy food consultation with Bashas' registered dietitian.
