San Diego, CA (PRWEB) October 14, 2012
Whole Foods Market has launched a new labeling system that will help customers identify health foods within store locations. To help further encourage healthy eating, Massage School San Diego, which supports raw organic foods such as raw organic chocolate and San Diego massage therapy school, has released its daily healthy eating tip for readers.
According to Food Navigator USA, Austin-based grocery store chain Whole Foods Market has introduced a color coded system that rates foods according to healthiness. Under the system, foods are given a green, yellow or orange sticker to indicate the level of healthiness in each product, allowing customers to choose healthier items while shopping in Whole Foods stores. Items are evaluated by sugar and sweetener content, amount of whole grains, animal product content, calories and saturated fat. Items that don’t meet healthy eating requirements are not labeled. The system is currently being tried out in select locations and will be rolled out across the country in the coming months.
In an effort to further encourage healthy food choices, Massage School San Diego has issued its daily healthy eating tip for readers, "Healthy eating isn’t just about eating lots of fruits and vegetables; it’s about eating a variety of healthy foods each and every day. There are over 40 essential nutrients your body needs to ensure you’re in good health, so eat an array of items. Each day, your diet should contain a combination of whole grains, fruits, vegetables, dairy, protein and more. When in doubt, look to the Food Pyramid."
Whole Foods Market is a chain of grocery stores with 331 locations in the U.S. It focuses on providing natural and organic food products. The company was founded by John Mackey in 1980 out of Austin, Texas. It has nearly 60,000 employees.
