Eating Well With Kim: Teaming up with Bi-Lo

Eating well with Kim and Tim is now taping grocery segments at local Bi-Lo locations in the CSRA.

We are excited to get started with our new taping location. I wanted to begin by doing a little research on Bi-Lo prior to our first taping event. Here are a couple of interesting things I thought would be fun to highlight.

  • Bi-Lo prides themselves on quality produce and feature many local items as seasonally appropriate. This time of the year that means sweet potatoes and greens like collards.

  • Our recent cold snap (freezing temperatures) has been hard on the greens this year but there were still some to choose from when we did our taping.

  • The produce manager also pointed out to me that the pre-cut packaged greens are also from a local farm (that is something I had not considered before—and I find that pretty cool!)

  • Next I was intrigued to discover that Bi-Lo has a wellness program they call the Thrive program. Part of that program includes a nutrition “shelf-tag” system. The self tag system is a great first step in shopping for healthier foods.

Here is a link for more information about the nutrition tag program.
