Lodi Community Hospital is partnering with Lodi's Miller’s Market grocery store to provide free tours designed to make shopping for food and meal planning easier. Join Robin Waltenberger, Lodi Community Hospital’s registered dietitian, for a one-hour Good Health in Store: Supermarket Tours for Diabetes at Miller’s Market, 711 Wooster St., Lodi, on August 13, from 10:30-11:30 a.m. to learn how to simplify shopping and still enjoy eating. The tour provides hands-on experience with reading labels, determining portion sizes, deciding which foods are best (you may be surprised!), what to avoid, and when you can "bend the rules." The tour is open to everyone whether or not you have diabetes – the information is also helpful for weight loss, polycystic ovarian syndrome, or if you have high cholesterol, blood press or triglycerides! The tour is free, but you must call 330-948-5546 to reserve your place. Each tourist will receive a shopping guide, so don’t forget your glasses and a pen!
