You might already know that heart disease is the No. 1 cause of death in Texas, but did you know that it will kill one in three people this year?
February is American Heart Health Month, and Market Street is committed to generating awareness and educating guests of the impact of their food choices. As part of the supermarket’s investment in health and wellness, all Market Street locations offer year-round services for guests.
A Market Street Dietitian will demonstrate how Market Street encourages guests to lead heart healthy lifestyles year-round. The company’s ongoing commitment to health and wellness includes the following programs and promotions:
- Dietitian-led store tours – February tours include “Healthy Heart Cart,” “Easy Diabetes Shopping,” “Healthy Shopping 101” and “Living Gluten/Dairy Free.” Guests can sign up online at marketstreetdfw.com/health/our-dietitians/dietitian-tours/signup.
- NuVal Nutritional Scoring System – Market Street was the first grocery chain in Texas to implement this system, which rates the nutritional value of foods throughout the store on a scale of 1 to 100. The higher the score, the healthier the item.
- Easy-to-read Health Tags – Many foods in Market Street feature special tags that highlight a product’s primary health attributes, such as “Heart Healthy,” “Low Sodium,” “Low Saturated Fat” and “High Fiber.” Also, Market Street Dietitians mark their “Top Picks” to offer the best options for health and wellness, allowing guests to make more informed shopping decisions.
- Living Well menu – Market Street offers a selection of prepared hot foods that fall under specific dietary guidelines, ideal for guests looking for healthy on-the-go options.
