Other Events

Educational Tours – Eating Better to Manage Diabetes
People with diabetes and those that want to eat better to possibly prevent being diagnosed with the condition, are welcomed to attend “Eating Healthy with my Diabetes” store tours at area Jewel-Osco stores. The free educational tours are designed to help customers learn to choose better-for-you foods and eat healthfully, while incorporating foods they love into their meal plans. Specially-trained pharmacists and registered dietitians guide the free in-store tours, covering topics such as reading Nutrition Facts’ labels and identifying healthier food options.
The next local tour will be held June 22 from 6 to 8 pm at the Jewel Osco, 107 Avenue of the Cities, East Moline. “Managing diabetes is about understanding the importance of balanced nutrition, regular meals and choosing from a variety of food groups throughout the day. Our tours help Quad Cities customers discover how they can enjoy controlled portions from every food group and eat things they like, including what they need to help manage their blood sugar,” said Jewel-Osco Registered Dietitian Kim Kirchherr, MS, RD, LDN, CDE. The tours will run through early December. To find more tours near you, to register or to obtain additional information, consumers can visit their local Jewel-Osco pharmacy, call 1-800-403-8238 or register online at http://www.eatinghealthywithmydiabetes.com
