BRG, Rouses Market Team Up for Free Grocery Store Tours

BATON ROUGE, La. – Baton Rouge General (BRG) has teamed up with Rouses Market to offer monthly Grocery Store Tours designed to help attendees learn to choose fresh, healthy foods while also understanding nutrition labels.

As part of the tour, BRG registered dietitians will share tips on how to meal plan, create a shopping list and prepare healthy dishes for your family with custom recipes. While walking mostly the outer edges of the store on the dietitian-led tour, attendees will learn which brands tend to be better options and that not everything labeled “healthy” is good for you.

“We put our in-person Grocery Store Tours on hold during COVID, so we’re happy to be back engaging with the community as life gets more back to normal,” said Kristin West, a registered dietitian at BRG. “For some people this may come easily, but many are overwhelmed at all the options and ‘dos and don’ts’ of healthy eating, often making poor choices as a result.”

The tours will be held monthly at three Rouses locations -- Baton Rouge- Bluebonnet, Denham Springs -Juban Crossing, and Zachary – Church St./Hwy 64. They are free, but space is limited, and registration is required. For more information or to register, click here.
