Thalhofer attends Albertsons Healthy Eaters event

Troutdale Mayor Paul Thalhofer was among the local dignitaries and state representatives who attended the Troutdale Albertsons' 'Healthy Eaters' program Tuesday, April 22.

Albertsons hosted second and third graders from Portland Christian Academy, who took a hands-on tour of the store to learn about nutrition and healthy food choices.

The students were allowed to sample various fruits and vegetables while learning about label reading, nutrients, fats and portion sizes.

Thalhofer joined representatives from various organizations that included the Oregon PTA, the Oregon Dairy Council, Stand for Children and the Oregon Diabetes Association in touring the store along with the students.

Albertsons hosts the 'Healthy Eaters' program in about eight states where it has grocery stores. To schedule a field trip, call 1-800-987-6409 or visit www.fieldtripfactory.com.
