Shopping Smarter and Healthier

Shoppers in Yakima have the chance to learn a little bit about shopping smarter and healthier this week.

Walmart is hosting a series of healthy living classes, where people can learn about ways to save money and buy healthier foods at their local supermarket.

The classes were inspired by a campaign aimed at connecting children with proper nutrition -- starting with their homes.

Class attendees also say they've learned a few new tips about grocery shopping.

"it was pretty interesting," said Perla Benitez, "Some of the stuff i think i do anyway, but the fact that sometimes buying the larger amount isn't necessarily the best per unit price -- i never thought of that."

Classes wil be held all day tomorrow and Thursday at the Walmart on West Nob Hill Boulevard in Yakima.

Classes begin at 10 a.m, 1 p.m., and 3 p.m.
