See nutrition in action at your community Metro Market store!
During the Be a Smart Shopper! field trip, healthy eating activities give kids the tools they need to make nutritious choices in each grocery store department. Students experience lessons on how certain foods affect their bodies, food safety, and the benefits of staying active. Kids will also learn about the roles of different employees within the store. Experiencing these important concepts in a real-world environment helps students make deeper connections and provides them with the tools to live a healthy life.
