Inserra Supermarkets Celebrating the 10-year Anniversary of In-store Dietitian Programming This Month

HACKENSACK, N.J., Oct. 5, 2016 – Rina Framarin has earned the title of “Biggest Winner” in ShopRite of Hackensack’s weight-loss challenge for associates. Alison Halpern, R.D., C.H.E.S., the store’s registered dietitian, led the recent 90-day challenge, providing nutrition and wellness counseling to Framarin and the other participants every step of the way.

“Having someone like Alison believe in me was the encouragement I needed to start making the right choices when it came to choosing healthy foods and getting exercise,” said Framarin, who manages the store’s floral department. “I didn’t want to settle anymore and had gotten sick and tired of feeling sick and tired. Alison kept me motivated throughout the challenge.”

Halpern’s weight-loss challenge focused on small weekly goals, including eating more fruits and vegetables, adding lean protein to meals, planning nutritious snacks and increasing exercise.“Rina lost 25 pounds during our challenge, which amounts to 14% of her body weight,” said Halpern. “More importantly, her confidence is through the roof now – just as it should be – and her smile is brighter than ever. She committed to making positive changes with her lifestyle and is deserving of our title of ‘Biggest Winner.’”

“Our in-store dietitians like Alison play a central role in our company’s aim to educate and inspire our customers and associates to place more of an emphasis on their health,” said Lindsey Inserra, vice president of corporate health and wellness at Inserra Supermarkets, which owns and operates 22 ShopRite stores in New Jersey and New York. In September, the family-owned chain is celebrating the 10-year anniversary of its In-store Dietitian Program, which the company continues to expand.

Under the direction of Inserra, the dietitians lead an array of store-based nutrition and wellness events each month, often at the Dietitian’s Corner. Regular offerings include cooking classes for adults and kids, nutrition counseling, health screenings and much more. The dietitians also work in the local communities they serve, often partnering with hospitals, schools and nonprofits to conduct free workshops and seminars.

“I had to work hard day after day by eating right, watching my meal portions and drinking plenty of water, but it all paid off!” added Framarin, who resides in Rochelle Park, N.J. “I now understand the importance of eating well and living a healthy lifestyle and will never go back to some of those bad eating habits.”
