Good eating starts in the shopping trolley

The university’s nutrition and dietetics clinic will host the tour, which costs $6 per person.

It will be held at the Kelvin Grove Woolworths in Musk Avenue from 5.30pm to 7.30pm on Wednesday (June 19).

QUT Health Clinics manager Allison Vautin said it was the first time the clinics had taken members of the public around a supermarket.

“The tour is designed to educate participants on choosing the right foods and provide healthy shopping tips,” she said.

“It makes great sense to start the healthy eating journey where most people buy the bulk of their food – the supermarket.”

QUT has a new nutrition and dietetics clinic which is open to the public and staffed by student dietitians who are fully supervised by accredited dietitians.

They offer discounted one-hour appointments that cost $40 for initial appointments and $20 for pensioners and healthcare card holders.

They are able to provide information and advice on nutrition and diet issues related to children, pregnancy, seniors, food allergies and intolerances, dieting and weight loss, and other concerns.
