FREE Eating Healthy with Diabetes™

My local Safeway has done a really good job at stocking their shelves with affordable organic items. I especially like many of their “O” brand organics. Here’s another interesting way they are trying to keep up with their customer’s needs.

Staying healthy means more than just following your doctor’s plan and taking your medication. Our in-store Pharmacist has teamed up with a local Registered Dietitian to enhance your diabetes care plan with education and tools about the foods you eat every day.

Food solutions made easier
Our program begins with a Registered Dietitian leading a guided walking tour of our store including produce, meat, and other areas. During the tour you’ll learn about

  • Carb counting, types of fat
  • Fiber, free foods
  • Reading food labels
  • Mindful eating


Our Pharmacist wraps up the tour with information about glucose meters, group classes, vaccinations, injecting techniques, A1c testing and other services available for people with diabetes.
