Stop & Shop your way to a Healthy Lifestyle

by - 1/21/2009

What was your New Year's Resolution? I just have one standard one - to be healthy and happy. And Eating Healthy is the way I choose to do this. But it's not an easy task, especially once you hit the grocery store where the choices are enormous!

Thanks to Mom Central, I came to know about Stop & Shop Supermarket's Healthy Ideas, a new on-shelf symbol that helps customers easily identify foods that fit into a healthy lifestyle.

To take the guesswork out of making healthy food choices, Stop & Shop has placed the Healthy Ideas symbol on 3000+ items and shelf tags throughout its stores. The symbol highlights foods that have less fat, saturated fat and sodium. It also helps to ensure that the foods we select include a healthful amount of at least one nutrient, such as fiber, whole grains, calcium and minerals.

The power of Healthy Ideas lies in the strength of its criteria which was developed by a team of registered dietitians and reviewed by an advisory panel of physicians and nutrition experts, including Dr. George Blackburn, associate director of the Division of Nutrition at Harvard Medical School. Research played a critical role in the development of the symbol, which uses the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, the USDA Food Pyramid ( and the USDA/FDA's definition of healthy as a basis for its foundation.
