With the NuVal Nutritional Scoring System now in place in all 50 United Supermarkets, Market Street and Amigos stores, United is inviting Texans to kick off the new year with NuVal by attending its free, educational “Healthy New You” expos at any of its 10 Market Street locations in north and west Texas.
“We were very excited to announce the extension of the NuVal program to all of our United, Market Street and Amigos stores,” said Tyra Carter, United’s corporate dietitian. “But we’re even more excited to personally introduce it to the families who shop with us and show them how to easily make nutritious foods work for their unique needs and budgets at the ‘Healthy New You’ expos.”
United Supermarkets became the first grocer in Texas to implement the NuVal system, introducing it in 14 stores last March.
As part of United’s commitment to the total health and wellness of Texas families, the expos – scheduled for Jan. 15 and 16 – will serve as a forum for helping guests choose nutritional foods that work for their diets and lifestyles. Market Street team members will offer complimentary food samples, coupons, recipe cards, preparation tips and nutrition information, as well answer questions about the NuVal system at designated stations throughout store. Also, store pharmacists will provide blood pressure and cholesterol screenings at no charge.
The NuVal scoring system ranks foods on a scale of one to 100 based on a variety of nutrition factors; the higher the NuVal score, the higher the nutrition. “There are a lot of myths and misinformation about healthy eating and living well, and through the help of the NuVal system and education, we hope to serve as a trusted source of food facts that families can rely on,” Carter said.
Market Street is a unique shopping experience that combines the everyday groceries guests need with the specialty items, whole-health, gourmet and pre-prepared foods they want. Market Street locations are in Allen, Amarillo, Colleyville, Coppell, Frisco, Lubbock, McKinney, Plano and Wichita Falls.
Now in its 95th year of operation, United Supermarkets LLC is a Texas-based, family-owned grocery chain with stores in 30 markets across north and west Texas.
