Did you know?

Youth are 3x more likely than adults to be influenced by tobacco ads. Having easy access to junk food creates unhealthy habits at an early age. Good health starts with the foods we buy for our families! Healthy families mean healthy communities.

What is a ‘healthy’ store?

A healthy store is one where the healthy choice is the easy one.

It encourages customers to buy healthier items, such as fresh fruits and vegetables, water, and other healthier offerings.  It also protects youth in the store from tobacco and alcohol.

The healthy retail program rewards stores that focus on the 4 P’s: Product, Price, Placement, Promotion.
