Choosing the right foods and understanding food labels can be a challenge.
We organise supermarket tours in metropolitan and regional areas to help make shopping for food easier. As part of the two hour tour, local dietitians show you how to accurately read and understand food labels, select healthy food alternatives and identify products that are appropriate for people with diabetes. You will also receive a show bag with information sheets and other useful information.
Cost: Free-DA-Vic members and $15 for non-members. Limited bookings available for each tour.
To make a booking, contact the Diabetes Info and Advice Line (DIAL) on 1300 136 588.

Diabetes Australia Shopping Guide
Diabetes Australia’s best-selling Healthy Shopping Guide contains more than 1200 examples of suggested food products commonly found on supermarket shelves. It shows you how to read food labels, understand nutrition claims and recognise those that are misleading.
The Healthy Shopping Guide includes a nutrient criteria section relating to more than 28 different food categories making it easier for you to make healthy food choices. Whether or not you have diabetes, this handy pocket-sized guide takes all the hard work out of food shopping.
This booklet normally costs $7.50, however, you will receive a free copy when attending a Diabetes Australia-Vic supermarket tour.
To order a copy of the booklet, please call the Diabetes Information and Advice Line on 1300 136 588 or visit the Diabetes-Vic online shop:
