Ground-breaking strategies to engage your audience on tour:
Vicki Adcock Kennerly, RD, is a registered and licensed dietitian who worked for Kroger, and she really knows how to get everything organized for a super tour. That’s why she teamed up with Food and Health Communications to make this amazing program.
- FOCUSED: This program is centered around heart health: how to get more fiber, how to lower sodium, how to avoid saturated fat and trans fat, and how to add fish, beans, fruits, veggies, whole grains, and low-fat dairy to a daily menu.
- TEACH BY TOUR: There’s a simple, memorable, and important message for each aisle of the grocery store.
- JUST RIGHT: For grains, you get the three most important points: 1) choose whole grains, 2) purchase lower sodium grain products, and 3) understand calorie density, so you make lower calorie choices (e.g., oatmeal instead of crackers). This format is also followed for each section.
- ACTION PLAN: Check out the recommendations for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks.
- WHY: There are research tips for each section. For example, whole grains: are rich sources of B vitamins and soluble fiber and can lower cholesterol, triglycerides, and homocysteine level.
- EVERY DETAIL FOR YOU: The tour program has over 80 pages of notes and details. We’ve also put together leader guides to help you every step of the way. The kit even includes matching printer-ready handouts for all your attendees.
- Detailed speaker's notes help you present your lesson with confidence. Use trivia, data, questions, and resources to embellish each slide and point.
- The PowerPoint brings the store into your classroom or office!
- The rich illustrations and graphics make your presentation stand out.
- All the health messages are positive and easy to understand.
