A partnership between the Mason Community Center and TriHealth has created an unusual way to learn how to shop for healthy foods.
Live Well in Mason has prepared a spring break scavenger hunt that takes participants any one of three Kroger stores near Mason and Deerfield Township. There they will be hunting for several healthy food items and answering questions about them.
“There are misconceptions out there about some products that people think are healthier than they really are because of the words (on the packaging),” said Tiffany Wentzel, a coordinator with Live Well in Mason.
“We want to help people become more aware of healthy food items and where to find them at the grocery store.”
Items on the list were selected specifically for the Krogers stores at 9600 S. Mason-Montgomery Road, 4700 Fields-Ertel Road and 7855 Tylersville Road.
Families can pick up the scavenger hunt sheet at the Mason Community Center, 6050 Mason-Montgomery Road beginning March 24. Completed sheets can be returned to any customer service desk at the community center through March 31.
There is no cost to participate and you do not have to be a member of the community center. Any family that completes the sheet correctly will receive a prize.
