Now, it’s easy for shoppers to choose healthy items at Harris Teeter

The new yourwellness program identifies important attributes about the food shoppers buy most.

 

Charlotte, NC – Harris Teeter realizes that its shoppers live busy lives and sometimes they don’t have as much time as they would like to search for healthy foods.  With its customers’ health in mind Harris Teeter has been diligently working on a new program for the past year to simplify their shopping experience.


The yourwellness program is designed to make choosing nutritional items easier for its shoppers and their families.  Twenty-three wellness keys can now be found throughout all Harris Teeter stores.  The wellness keys represent a variety of attributes including sugar free, fat free, vegan, heart healthy and can be found on select packages of Harris Teeter brand and HT Natural products. 

 

Of course some shoppers don’t have time to search product packages for wellness keys.  So to make it even easier Harris Teeter has placed wellness key shelf tags throughout all stores in front of yourwellness products.  Now all a shopper needs to do is familiarize themselves with the wellness key and color that pertains to their specific needs.

How can they learn about the different yourwellness keys?  Well, Harris Teeter has teamed up with Russell H. Greenfield, M.D to develop a yourwellness guide.  Dr. Russ is medical director of Carolinas Integrative Health and a food expert. 

 

The FREE booklet can be found in kiosks throughout all Harris Teeter stores.  The pages of the booklet include a list of all the wellness keys, 10 common health ailments and recommended foods from Dr. Russ that may help prevent or minimize the effect of these ailments.  Harris Teeter’s very own Chef Phil Anderson has also developed recipes for

each ailment using Dr. Russ’s recommended foods. 

 

Harris Teeter is committed to providing its customers with the best shopping experience possible.  The yourwellness program is just another way to show shoppers we care.  This program is for informational purposes and should not be considered medical advice.  Harris Teeter would like to encourage its shoppers to check with their doctor before making changes to their diet.
