Lost in the Supermarket

Too many people shop for groceries without a clue about what they really want or need. In this video, Mike Colameco, producer and host of PBS’s Colameco’s Food Show, helps students keep their brains turned on after they enter the supermarket. Mike demonstrates that smart food purchases—accomplished on a reasonable budget—will lead to healthy and flavorful meals. With a well-organized shopping list, Mike walks viewers through the aisles of a grocery store, teaching them how to compare prices, find bargains, read nutrition labels, and determine the proper quantity to buy so as to avoid waste. A focus on organic foods is also included. A viewable/printable instructor’s guide is available online. A Meridian Production. (26 minutes)
