LA CROSSE, Wis. - Shopping smart while on a budget. It's a goal for many of us. 25 lucky people get the opportunity to learn some tips to buy healthy foods and not spend a lot of money.
A registered dietitian at Festival Foods received a grant to provide tours of one of their grocery stores.
During that tour, the shoppers learn tips on buying fruits and vegetables on a limited budget, identifying whole grains, comparing unit prices and reading food labels.19529742
