Program featuring healthy diet options available on Fort Leonard Wood

Dieticians from General Leonard Wood Army Community Hospital and Commissary officials have teamed up to host a new tour program featuring healthy diet options available on Fort Leonard Wood. The first hour-long tour is scheduled to begin at 7 a.m. Friday. According to 1st Lt. Brittany Powers, a dietician with GLWACH’s Nutrition Care Division, the purpose of the tours are to show participants some of the healthier options they may not have known about around the store. “It’s easier to show people healthy eating versus me just explaining it in the office,” Powers said. In addition to showcasing healthier options, the dietitians leading the tour will explain how to read nutrition labels, and samples of certain foods will be available for those who want to try items before purchasing something new. Those attending the tour can also participate in a raffle to win a $50 Commissary gift card. Besides Friday’s event, Powers said another tour is scheduled for November 4th.
