Research has shown that low-income communities have greater access to fast food, that healthy food tends to be more expensive and grocery stores are less prevalent in low-income neighborhoods. So families that are budget-conscious need to really make an effort to make healthy choices.
To help those families choose nutrition, Learning ZoneXpress has developed MyPlate on a Budget Tri-Fold Brochures. The brochures offer practical advice such as:
- Buy Seasonal
- GO Generic
- Buy in bulk
- But it whole and
- Visit the freezer aisle.
They are simple suggestions, including a low cost grocery list, to help make healthy choices easy and affordable.
The tri-folds are colorful and come in packs of 50. So they are easy to handout to patients, parents, students or just leave in a waiting room or other public place. They are equally convenient for the recipients. They are the perfect size to keep in a bag or purse -- and hand enough to take out and reference while in the grocery store.
