Schnuck Markets is looking to help its customers approach healthy and balanced lifestyles this new year with the launch of a new program.
The Good For You initiative from the retailer, which is free of charge and available to Schnucks Rewards members, looks to help identify healthy options and track purchases.
Customers who opt to participate in the program will be shown a count of the total number of Good For You items, a percentage of the food items purchased that fall under the Food For You category, and monthly reports that gauge if progress is being made when it comes to improving their healthiness of foods filling their pantries and fridge’s, the company said.
