Shopping for health tours

A Dietitian from Lewisham Hospital runs free shopping tours in local supermarkets. The tours are focused on understanding the food labels, in order to help with making better food choices. 

We can help you with the following topics:

  • Diabetes
  • Healthy Eating
  • Heart Health
  • To improve nutrition knowledge

After a short introduction we will go through some of the important food groups and look at food labels in order to help you compare products. You will be given a booklet which summarises some of the key points that we will talk about on the tour. 

The tour will last around 1 ½ to 2 hours.

Where and when are the tours?

Shopping tours will run on a Friday morning.  We have the support of Sainsbury’s and run the tours in their stores in New Cross Gate, Sydenham and Lee Green. 

How do I join a tour?

Please call or email us with your name, DOB, telephone number and your preferred supermarket.

Tel: 0208 333 3314

Email:  tlh-tr.lewishamdietetics@nhs.net

We will then let you know of the date and time of the next shopping tour.

Please note:

Participants need to be able to communicate in English and be physically able to mobilise around the supermarket for that length of time.
