|Reviewers Comments: ||Most of the kit information pertains to the actual supermarket tour. Aisle by aisle teaching modules, which include three objectives each, corresponding learning activities, and tip sheets for eight sections of the supermarket, are included in the kit. Sampling products is encouraged, and health benefits of various foods and food groups are listed. Brand name products are mentioned in the kit as suggested examples. Label reading using the Nutrition Facts Panel is explained and promoted. Shopping tips including using coupons, and understanding unit pricing and sell-by dates is contained in the handouts, but not the lecture information. Questions to anticipate from participants (along with the answers) are incorporated in each teaching module.
Attendee and supermarket evaluations are available. The purchaser of the kit is given permission to reproduce these as well as all other handouts provided only for the purpose of conducting a supermarket tour. Reproducing material from the kit for other purposes (such as classroom lessons, health fairs, and in newsletters) is prohibited. Additional information about marketing nutrition in the supermarket beyond the supermarket tour is also provided and can be helpful for educators looking to expand their nutrition education efforts even more.
The cost of conducting a tour may vary in different parts of the country.
