Grocery Shopping Trick

Posted on: August 22, 2010

Here is a trick for grocery shopping that will lead to healthier eating: designate a part of your shopping cart specifically for fruits and vegetables!
 
Researchers from New Mexico State University used a strip of duct tape to make a line through the middle of shopping carts in a local grocery store. They also posted a sign on each cart that recommended that fruits and vegetables be placed on one side of the line.
 
Shoppers who had one of the special carts bought 102 percent more fruits and veggies than those who had regular carts!! Despite the change in shopping habits, the special carts didn’t change the amount of overall money the shoppers were spending.
 
So you are not saving money, but you are making healthier choices!! Bring that duct tape to the grocery store next time!!
