Community Dietician Joanna Ledoux spoke to the Healthy Flin Flon Community Forum on this year’s Nutrition Month theme best food forward: plan, shop, cook enjoy, dedicated to navigating the grocery store where healthy eating starts. She said you should have a meal plan, check flyers and coupons that will help you save money, compare brands, read labels including the nutrition facts, buy only what you need and make shopping a family affair to teach children how to make healthy choices. Ledoux recommends cooking from scratch so you can control the ingredients and the cost.
