You really are what you eat. This is what makes the grocery store the best place for nutrition education. It’s where you make the decisions about what to bring home to feed yourself and your family. That’s why we offer nutrition services to help you along your journey to better health.
Our Nutrition Consultants
We’re proud to have a Nutrition Consultant in each and every Choices location. Our team of Registered Dietitians and Holistic Nutritionists work in harmony to provide evidence-based and holistic food and nutrition recommendations on nearly every subject. Whether you have a new diagnosis like a food intolerance, celiac disease or diabetes or you want to learn how to read labels or avoid genetically modified foods, Choices’ Nutrition Consultants can help.
Book a FREE, 60-minute Nutrition Tour or get a sneak preview of our tours here. Or simply stop by when your Nutrition Consultant is in the store to ask a question, pick up a brochure or recipe, or get help finding a product that’s right for you.
We also offer educational seminars on a range of topics from hormones to digestive health, as well as cooking classes at our Kitsilano, South Surrey, Burnaby Crest and Kelowna stores. Look for special events with guest chefs and educators for DIY workshops on a variety of subjects like fermented foods. To see upcoming events, check out our listings.
