To celebrate a 10-year anniversary of the in-store Dietitian Program, Inserra Supermarkets held a storewide Health and Wellness Fair at ShopRite of Wallington, N.J. The themed event, for all ages, featured recipe samplings, giveaways, complimentary health screenings and more.
“Educating our customers and associates on the importance of healthy eating and preventive health screenings is one of our top priorities at Inserra Supermarkets, and we continue to expand our dietitian programming with that goal in mind,” said Lindsey Inserra, vice president of corporate health and wellness at Inserra Supermarkets.
The in-store program keeps registered dietitians on staff to answer nutrition questions and share healthy recipe ideas while shopping. On a monthly basis, dietitians host a variety of free store-based events, such as product demos, one-on-one nutrition counseling sessions, weight management classes and health screenings. Also offered are hands-on cooking classes. Dietitians partner with local hospitals, schools, and nonprofits to conduct free workshops and seminars.
The event included screenings on posture, vein circulation, and backpack safety. Also present, 24 Hour Fitness and Orange Theory Fitness shared details on the role of exercise and wellness. On-hand attendees received the benefit of free passes and memberships. Project Body, a partner of ShopRite of Wallington’s Pharmacy, offered free massages and a flu shot clinic.
