Learn how to buy healthy foods to help manage your diabetes at the August Diabetes Clinic: Grocery Store Tour class


The first step to eating healthier is buying healthy foods. However, wandering the aisles of the grocery store in search of “healthy foods” can be overwhelming. Join University of Illinois Extension for the August “Diabetes Clinic: Grocery Store Tour” class from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 18 at the Eureka IGA, 514 W. Center St.

Extension nutrition and wellness educator and registered dietitian Jenna Smith takes participants on a tour down IGA’s grocery aisles to learn how to shop smart to find the best foods to support you and your family’s health needs. 

Diabetes clinics are informal but informational walk-in programs with a different topic each month designed especially for persons living with diabetes.
