WCAP Nutrition Tips

5 Tips for Grocery Shopping

1. Shop the perimeter of the store.  Foods on the outer perimeter tend to contain foods that are less processed.
2. Read ingredients list.  Try to avoid foods that have sugar listed in the first 3 ingredients.
3. Limit foods that more than 8 ingredients.  The less listed, the less processed it is.
4. Choose meats from the deli counter instead of packaged.  Packed meats are highly processed.
5. For boxed foods, follow the 3-3-3 rule.  At least 3 grams of fiber, 3 grams of protein and less than 3 grams of fat.
