Have you heard about Safeway’s new program SimpleNutrition? I absolutely love this new idea. Basically, Safeway has implemented a new shelving system that offers a hang tag that lists nutrition and ingedient criteria. So now, when you shop, you can look for bright green tags that are easy to read and understand. These items have all been screened to make sure they meet their new criteria. Safeway worked closely with registered dietitians to ensure healthy guidelines were met.
Each SimpleNutrition tag highlights key benefits for that product. So if you want products that are Gluten Free or Low Fat, those items are going to be easy to identify based on the new tag system. If you want to provide more organic choices for your home, now you can simply look for the SimpleNutrition tags marked “Organic.” This new system is also being implemented in the produce section. You’ll see new tags identifing produce that are good sources of Folate, Potassium, or Antioxidants.
Safeway would love Frugal Day readers to check out the new SimpleNutrition tag system in your store. We are giving TWO lucky readers $25 Gift Cards for their next shopping trip. Head over to Safeway.com/simplenutrition and check out the SimpleNutrition items. Leave a comment below telling me what tag feature you are looking forward to seeing the most.
Safeway provided Frugal Day with the gift cards for this giveaway. All content in this review is solely my opinion. Please use a valid email address, this is how I will contact the winner. Giveaway will end at 8:00pm PST on Friday, March 4th. Two winners will be chosen randomly using “And the Winner Is…” a WordPress plug in. Good Luck!
