CT ShopRites Celebrate Nutrition Month
Jamie Lee McIntyre
To celebrate March as National Nutrition Month, a LiveRight with ShopRite Kids Day event will take place at stores in Stamford, Norwalk, Fairfield, Brookfield, Shelton, Southbury and Derby. Bring the kids to participate in a fun nutrition activity, taste a healthy snack and chat with a Registered Dietitian. Parents will receive recipes, tips, and coupons all aimed at keeping kids healthy and nourishing their growing bodies. Last year, ShopRite of Commerce Park in Stamford took a giant step toward health for their customers by welcoming Jamie Lee McIntyre, Registered Dietitian and Certified Dietitian-Nutritionist, to the store’s team. As In-store Dietitian, Mrs. McIntyre offers free nutrition services to customers, associates and members of the community. Such services include nutrition counseling, shopping assistance, product information, healthy cooking classes, nutrition seminars, grocery store tours, health screenings and off-site outreach programs. Mrs. McIntyre can be found at the Dietitian’s Corner next to the Pharmacy at ShopRite of Commerce Park, but also organizes health events at additional locations. As part of the store’s LiveRight program, customers can also take home complimentary Healthy Recipe Cards each week, along with wellness education materials. Color-coded shelf labels throughout the stores make it easy to find items that are Gluten Free, Organic, Natural, Low Fat/Fat Free, Low/Reduced Sodium, No Sugar Added and Sugar Free.
Check your local ShopRite for dates/times of ShopRite Kids Days. Jamie Lee McIntyre RD CD-N, Grade A ShopRite Dietitian, is located at the 1990 West Main Street, Stamford ShopRite store.
