WEBE Wellness: Go Online To Eat Healthier

You want to eat healthier, but sometimes that’s easier said than done. But it’s doable – and it may be as simple as just not going to the store!

A new study shows that those who bought their groceries online spent a lot less on junk food than when they shopped in person.

And it wasn’t that they were buying all that much less – just $2.50 per grocery purchase and avoiding things like candy and frozen desserts.

Shoppers online found that there were simply less opportunities for impulse purchases – there were no display towers of items that they didn’t have on their list that they were then tempted to add to their cart.

Online shopping also allows pre-saved shopping lists, and filters for healthier options, which would limit what they see. And many who shopped in person needed to bring children along who would ask for those unhealthy items.

So, if you’re looking to eat healthier, it may be as easy as going online!
