Nutrition on the shelves at Tops

Tops Markets is starting to label groceries on the shelves with nutritional scores on a scale from 1 to 100. The system, called “NuVal,” is in place in 1,000 stores in 23 states, according to Buffalo Business First.
NuVal been out there for a few years, but this is the first time it’s come to Erie. The scores for each food are on shelves and signs throughout the stores.
The NuVal blue-hexagon logo will appear on shelf tags with the food rankings.
The news story said the labels were in place at the Tops in Amherst, N.Y. Thursday. I haven’t seen them yet, but NuVal’s company spokesman said they should be up in all 134 of the chain’s stores. I plan to stop at Tops on West 26th Street on my way home to check it out.
We’re out of baby carrots. Those should get a pretty good score. Then I’ll look at the Diet Coke. (wince).
