In the Kitchen with Fareway: How to Choose Healthy Canned Items for Your Pantry

Fareway Dietitian Whitey Hemmer Features The Best Canned Items for Your Pantry

MOLINE, Illinois — February is National Canned Food Month and so this month, Fareway Food Stores is showing us how to choose cans that are healthy, affordable, and easy to use!

On Tuesday, February 25th during Good Morning Quad Cities, Dietitian Whitney Hemmer focused on canned food items that you should make sure to always have in your pantry.

Here are the four foods you should always have on hand:

Beans: All varieties work. Beans are a great choice for your protein, starch or vegetable.

Tuna: Look for the packets for a quick grab-and-go lunch.

Diced Tomatoes: Hemmer said petite seem to hold their shape the best.

Broth/Stock: Look for unsalted. Be sure to season your own for lower sodium!
