Suggestion to improve healthy food choices

A couple of weeks ago, I blogged about the results of a study that found, according to the extract, "Greater supermarket availability was generally unrelated to diet quality and fruit and vegetable intake, and relationships between grocery store availability and diet outcomes were mixed."

I asked readers to share their ideas about influencing behavior change.   One reader responded with this:

UDC has a partnership with the Farmers Markets (I know with Ward 8 Farmer's Market) to help people make good food choices at the Farmers Market and to cook/prepare the food they get there. Farmers Markets are a good choice because they rarely offer the processed foods, just the stuff that is normally in the outer aisles at a grocery store. They have limitations as few are open year round or even daily. But they are a start and can help figure out what to do when you are in the grocery store.
