Giant Food Stores and Martin's Food Markets have rolled out a new section of the Giant Web site focusing on healthy ideas. The section, known as "The Nutritionist," can be accessed from the Giant homepage at www.giantfoodstores.com.
Sylvia B. Emberger, corporate nutritionist at Giant, said the content "has been specifically designed to provide one with valuable nutrition information, health tips, and more."
The section introduces Giant/Martin's four nutritionists: Emberger, Lisa M. Coleman, Sylvia E. McDonald, and Mary Ann Moylan. The nutritionists run store tours in Camp Hill and Willow Grove, Pa. and Eldersburg, Md. for shoppers with health concerns, in addition to a range of classes and seminars designed to help customers live a healthier lifestyle. The nutritionist class schedules are also online.
Other subsections of The Nutritionist include: Eating Healthy on a Budget, featuring a new healthy recipe every week made with ingredients from the current Giant/Martin's circular; Kid Healthy Ideas, which gives parents guidelines from MyPyramid to learn what their child should be eating from infancy to age 18; and Product of the Week Each, which provides information about a chosen item’s health benefits, taste, and usage in a recipe.
Customers additionally are able to get other health-related information at the new section, including current health topics and trends, frequently asked nutrition questions, information on food allergies and specific health issues, natural and organic information and weight management and exercise tips.
Carlisle, Pa.-based Giant Food Stores operates stores in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, and West Virginia under the Giant Food Stores, Martin's Food Markets, and FoodSource banners.
