ShopRite Promotes "Healthy Holidays" With Free Events and Giveaways
ShopRite announced today that it has launched “Healthy Holidays,” a new campaign that allows shoppers to sample “better-for-you” holiday foods, receive free nutritional advice from in-store health and wellness experts, and download a recipe booklet that features lightened-up versions of traditional holiday favorites.
“We know it’s hard to resist temptation over the holidays,” says Natalie Menza-Crowe, RD, MS, director of Health and Wellness at ShopRite. “That’s why we’re so excited let people know about our ‘Healthy Holidays’ campaign, which is all about helping our customers enjoy the holidays and create festive meals and desserts that are as delicious as they are nutritious.”
As part of the campaign, shoppers can pick up a free “Healthy Holidays” recipe brochure at the office of their local in-store ShopRite dietitian (or they can download the guide on www.shoprite.com). The pamphlet contains ideas for holiday-inspired salads, appetizers, meals and desserts, as well as “swap” ideas to create “better for you” versions of baking goods, pasta dishes and entrees.
To see a complete list of events that ShopRite’s team of Registered Dietitians will be hosting in celebration of the “Healthy Holidays” campaign, visit ShopRite.com/health-events.
“Healthy Holidays,” which runs through the end of December, is the latest entry into ShopRite’s Well Everyday messaging program. In additional to in-store events, the campaign features colorful signage throughout the store, as well as messaging in the supermarket’s website, social media channels, and weekly circulars.
