Let’s not kid ourselves. Most families and individuals are on the go-go-go. With action-packed lives being led, who has time to focus on healthiest options while at your favorite Marsh Supermarket? We understand the importance of good food and healthy choices. That’s why we’ve incorporated the Guiding Stars program into our everyday at Marsh.
Guiding Stars is the first-ever storewide navigation system created to give busy shoppers a quick tool if they’re looking for foods with more nutrition for the calories. Moreover, the U.S. Surgeon General has backed Guiding Stars, as a program that positively impacts your eating behavior to get you on the right track. In other words, Guiding Stars is here to make nutritious choices simple.
So, how does this work? Almost all of the food we carry in our store are rated; including packaged, fresh, and prepared foods. We make it easy for you to find the nutrition information you’re looking for. All you have to do is look at the shelf labels to see our stars.
Guiding Stars is here to help guide consumers toward more nutritious food choices. We believe healthy food choices are a foundational component in health and wellness programs aimed at addressing significant health concerns:
• Improved nutrition
• Heart disease
Guiding Stars is SIMPLE! The more stars you see, the more nutritious the food. The rating system looks like this:
No Stars – The food item doesn’t meet Guiding Star’s rigorous criteria
One Star – Good Nutritional Value
Two Stars – Better Nutritional Value
Three Stars – Best Nutritional Value
