Harris Teeter is helping shoppers stay healthy this summer
Five new FREE yourwellness brochures hit stores just in time for July 4th.

July 4th is the time for gatherings with friends and family.  Many shoppers look for ways to serve healthy items to their guests while still having a traditional celebration.  Harris Teeter is here to help.  The five new yourwellness brochures educate shoppers about being smart during the summer months, seafood safety, produce variety, planning a healthy picnic and grilling. Whether shoppers choose to grill out, have a picnic or just want to have some fun in the sun, these brochures are a must have. 

 

When planning their July 4th party shoppers will learn: how to choose the appropriate cut of meat and to remove the charred portion of their steak, the health benefits of the different color fruits and vegetables in the Farmers Market, the proper amount of sunscreen to apply, and how to keep hydrated on Independence Day. 

 

The five yourwellness brochures are found in the Farmers Market, Fresh Foods Market, Fishermans Market, meat department and pharmacy of all Harris Teeter stores.  Each brochure focuses on products available in those specific departments and Harris Teeter associates are always available to answer any questions. 

 

These brochures aren’t just for July 4th. The information available will keep shoppers healthy throughout the entire summer.  Additional information includes: how to clean your produce properly, how to choose a multi-vitamin, exercise and the sun and a reminder to keep a first aid kit handy. These brochures have it all.  Shoppers are encouraged to read them, take them home, and share with their family and friends!

 

The yourwellness program is designed to make choosing nutritional items easier for shoppers and their families.  Twenty-three wellness keys can 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 shoppers 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 original yourwellness guide can be found on the Harris Teeter website at www.harristeeter.com.   

 

The pages of the guide 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.
