Every grocery store carries healthy foods, but some stock a wider variety of fresh fruits and vegetables which we all know are crucial to good health. If you have a choice, where do you shop for groceries? Does health play into your choices, or is price or location the most important reason?
According to a recent story in Health magazine at http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/27573342/ 10 grocery store chains stand above the rest in terms of delivering a variety of healthy foods.
I live in the northeast, and one of the top 10 is present in my area: Hannaford. I appreciate that they strive to stock a variety of local produce. They also hire registered dietitians to be present in many of their stores, providing nutrition education and recommendations at the point of purchase. Great idea!
The entire top 10 list follows:
1. Whole Foods (I seek these out when I travel; they’re my #1 tourist destination!)
3. Harris Teeter
4. Trader Joe’s
7. Food Lion
8. Publix Super Markets
