BI-LO - Food Detectives

Learn how to make smart food choices in the aisles of your local BI-LO® Store.


Students use their senses to investigate the different departments throughout the store looking for healthy foods. They'll get a little help from Walter's Pals to learn about the benefits of nutrition and how to make healthy food choices. MyPlate will guide kids through healthy eating activities that teach the importance of a balanced diet.


Food Detectives promotes the importance of food safety and the benefits of using nutrition labels and facts. These real-world experiences will enhance learning and create lasting memories long after the field trip is over.
