To help customers refocus on healthier family meals in the new year, The Giant Co.’s dietitians will hold virtual nutrition classes on achieving balance in January and heart health in February. All of the classes will be offered free and live via Zoom.
“Over the past year, thousands of aspiring chefs of all ages participated in our virtual nutrition classes and we are excited to bring them back and better than ever for 2022,” noted Kilene Knitter, MS, RD, LDN, dietitian with The Giant Co. “While eating healthier often ranks among the top New Year’s resolutions, healthy eating is a lifestyle, and there are plenty of simple ways you can incorporate more nutritious foods and habits into your family’s routine. Let us show you how in our latest lineup of free virtual nutrition classes.”
