JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) - The American Heart Association's (AHA) Metro Jackson office and St. Dominic's Health Services are encouraging everyone to celebrate National Eating Healthy Day.

On Wednesday morning Shoppers at the Kroger on I-55 North were offered nutrition tips, learned how to read nutrition labels, and received information on eating healthier during the “Grocery Cart Makeover” event.  

AHA staff and volunteers also served fresh fruit with healthy messages to reinforce the importance of nutrition. 

National Eating Healthy Day encourages everyone to take the first step to making healthier food choices. Adopting healthier behaviors such as increasing physical activity and eating healthier can improve cardiovascular health and combat obesity.
