But what to my wondering eyes should appear; Harris Teeter’s free yourwellness for families program is back just in time for the New Year!
Harris Teeter shoppers’ lead busy lives and health matters often take a back seat during these demanding times. Therefore, Harris Teeter, is making it easier for shoppers to put their family’s health first by once again offering its free yourwellness program. On January 1, shoppers can pick up their free yourwellness for families program brochure, designed to help shoppers and their families get healthy, stay healthy and feel great.
“With the increase in the childhood obesity rate we realized how important it was to develop a program that parents and children can do together,” said Russell Greenfield, M.D. “Our program is a life enhancement program, not simply a weight management program, though aspects of it can be used to help any member of the family achieve and maintain a healthy body weight,” added Greenfield.

The booklet takes participants through a program designed to optimize health and well-being by offering nutrition information, stress management techniques, menu planning, recipes, a walking program and so much more.
