Hospital teaching people how to shop with a focus on doing it with health in mind
space
Aspirus Langlade Hospital wants to teach people how to navigate the grocery store, with an eye on heart health.

Registered dietitian Carolyn Kelk will kick off free tours of Antigo's Pick ‘'N Save beginning on Tuesday, April 16.

“We're starting this on a trial basis,” Kelk explained, noting the initial tour will run from 6 to 7:30 p.m.

Subsequent tours will be held on Tuesday, June 18, 3:30 to 5 p.m.; Tuesday, Aug. 20, 6 to 7:30 p.m.; and Tuesday, Oct. 15, 3:30 to 5 p.m.

Kelk said that the tours will cater to the wishes of participants, with an overall goal of choosing products that support a healthy heart. There will be taste-tasting and plenty of label-reading with an eye toward deciphering ingredient lists and nutritional content.

“People can get caught up in marketing,” Kelk explained. “Oftentimes certain things can appear to be healthy but really they are not.”Some of what Kelk termed “basic survival tips” include enjoying lots of fruits and vegetables along with lean proteins and heart-healthy fats. She also encourages shoppers to keep an eye on their sodium intake.

“You should be able to find something healthy in every aisle, even the chip aisle,” she said. “There are healthier options there as well.”

The tours are free but space is limited. Advance registration is required by calling 715 623-9873.

“We want to educate the public so they can take better care of themselves,” she said.
