Families in the state of Texas that struggle with diet-related illness, many of which are Latino, are about to get some help from their local grocery store. The Texas grocery store chain H-E-B is partnering with the American Diabetes Association to empower families in Texas to shop, cook, and eat healthier.
Launched in November 2014, the H-E-B Nutrition Services program will include registered dietitians and nutritionists in-store who will provide affordable nutrition education and care, private one-on-one consultations, grocery shopping tours, cooking demonstrations, group health classes, kids’ cooking classes, “lunch and learn” sessions, disease management classes and more.
Not every H-E-B will have a nutrition services program and registered dietitians are based at specific stores, but will travel to other stores to connect with customers at scheduled events, according to an article in The Rivard Report.
