-Not open to the public- MSU Extension Alpena has partnered with the Great Start Collaborative parent group through the AMA-ESD.  This is a one time presentation that will be held at Meijer where participants will learn how to:

  • Compare unit prices
  • Shop healthy choices on a budget
  • Read nutrition labels
  • Get to know the ingredients
  • Identify whole grains

At the end of the tour, participants will have the opportunity to put what they learned to use and will participate in a store challenge.  Each participant will need to create a healthy meal that will feed at least 4 people, have at least 4 out of the 5 food groups, and cost no more than $10.00.
