5 Tips To Turn You Into A Savvy Shopper

Posted: Updated:
PHILADELPHIA -

Wouldn't it be nice if we all knew our way around the supermarket, if we knew exactly which aisle to go down to find the best price and the best quality?

The fact is, there are a few things you should know before you venture down the aisles.

Lisa Brown is a register dietitian who has not one but five tips that she says will instantly turn you into a savvy shopper!

  • Tip #1: Ingredients matter-not just which ones, but how many.
  • Tip #2: We want the good stuff, not the fillers: avoid additional non-nutritive ingredients.
  • Tip #3: Don't believe the hype! Use common sense. Just because the packaging says it's healthy, doesn't mean it's true.
  • Tip #4: Convenience can still equal quality.
  • Tip #5: Look at serving sizes.

If you want to learn more, Lisa will also be doing an in-store appearance at 11:30 a.m. Tuesday at the Whole Foods in Jenkintown.
