Nutritious shopping with Guiding Stars – It's as easy as 1, 2, 3!

We believe that the foods you eat are the first step toward feeling your best, so we created Guiding Stars – a simple tool to help you make nutritious choices on the go. All foods are scientifically rated, and those that are more nutritious are marked with tags showing 1, 2 or 3 stars. The more nutritional value a food has, the more Guiding Stars it gets. Look for shelf tags in-store, or filter your Hannaford To Go shopping list for foods that earn Guiding Stars – and you'll be on your way to making nutritious food choices for you and your family!
