Jewel-Osco is joining the American Heart Association’s celebration of National Eating Healthy Day!

Heart disease and stroke affects everyone in this country—you, your neighbors and your loved ones. But beating these deadly diseases doesn’t have to mean radical fad diets and crazy exercise trends that are only temporary fixes. A commitment to healthy heart is about taking small steps each day to change how you eat and live. As those small steps add up, you’ll change your life for the better.

Join your Jewel-Osco Registered Dietitians in our stores for ideas on how to eat healthy on the go! We will be sampling recipes, talking about the best grab-and-go foods, and ideas on how to eat more of the right things when you are on the run! Visit us at the following locations on Wednesday November, 5th:

  • 2940 North Ashland Ave., Chicago, IL, and 60657   3pm-5pm
  • 21164 South LaGrange Rd., Frankfort, IL 60423      3pm-5pm
  • 20 Biesterfield Rd., Elk Grove Village, IL 6007          3pm-5pm
  • 411 North Green Bay Rd., Wilmette, IL 60091         11am-12:30pm

If you can’t join us in the store, here’s what you can do to join in the celebration:

  • Enjoy reasonable portions of heart-healthy foods such as fruits, vegetables and fiber-rich whole grains.
  • Bring healthier lunches and snacks to school and work.
  • Make healthier choices at the vending machine—avoid salty chips, sugary snacks, and sugar-loaded beverages.
  • If you eat lunch out with co-workers, look for nutritional information on the restaurant’s website or menu and select a healthier option in advance.
  • Use the American Heart Association’s website for free tips and tools to stay motivated.

Don’t forget that part of fighting heart disease and stroke, two of our nation’s leading killers, is helping the American Heart Association fund lifesaving research. Go to to contribute now.

Remember to mark your calendar for November 5 and join us in our celebration at Jewel-Osco.

See you there!
