For the second summer in a row, all three locations of Amigos United supermarkets will again host a health fair for its guests.
The event is slated for June 11 from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. and is open to all interested persons free of charge.
The Amarillo, Lubbock and Plainview store locations will have a registered dietitian on hand to provide body mass index (BMI) assessments and educate guests on the NuVal Nutritional Scoring System, which helps shoppers make more nutritious purchases. Guests will also have access to blood pressure, blood glucose and cholesterol screenings, as well as hypertension prevention and dental hygiene education.
Health fair attendees will receive free samples of toothbrushes and toothpaste, as well as 1 percent milk and fun milk mustache samples.
Developed by an independent panel of nutrition and medical experts from universities and health organizations, the simple NuVal system rates all foods and beverages on a scale of one to 100 based on a variety of nutritional characteristics. Shoppers can find the NuVal scores on shelf price tags in all locations of United Supermarkets, Market Street and Amigos United.
