Southern Maine Companies Celebrate Start! Eating Healthy Day with Help From Hannaford

The American Heart Association's (AHA) Maine office is partnering with Hannaford Supermarkets to encourage employees to make healthy eating choices on Wednesday, November 3 - National Start! Eating Healthy Day.

A recent AHA study shows that 70 percent of American adults report being told by a health care professional to make a lifestyle change such as eating healthier. Start! Eating Healthy Day encourages employees to make small changes each day to incorporate healthier food choices. Through this day, the AHA’s Start! initiative will increase awareness of the importance of good nutrition; and will provide education, tools and resources to companies nationwide.

Locally, Hannaford and the AHA will be delivering baskets of heart-healthy food from local Maine suppliers - along with a special Holiday Healthy Eating Guide - to several area employers. The goal of this day is to help people reduce their risk of heart disease and stroke by making changes in the workplace, where Americans spend the majority of their time.

Hannaford will also host a ”Start! Eating Healthy Nutrition Tour” on Friday, November 5th, where you can walk the aisles with a Hannaford nutritionist to find a healthy way to eat that's right for your heart!
