Being a Super Shopper

LabelNow that you have a menu planned and a list in hand, you are ready for the grocery store!  In this lesson, learn how to read a food label and use that information to assess nutritional value.  Learn how to calculate and use unit pricing to ensure you are getting the most for your money.  Explore ways to select the best fresh ingredients as well.


Shopping Tips


"I have saved $80 at the store by reading labels and cooking from scratch more"

- CNP Participant


During a supermarket tour, two of the CNP clients realized through the label reading that they could eat a lot more food if they stopped relying on pre-packaged pot pies.  Their favorite was 670 calories for one pie.  They concluded they could make a family size pot pie for little more than what they store-bought pot pie costs and reduce the fat by at least half as well as lots more veggies.
