Students from Green Hills Elementary School visited ShopRite of Byram this March for ShopRite's Young Consumer Program.

This program is very popular among elementary students and unique in so many ways. The months-long program teaches students about good nutrition and the value of a dollar. Young Consumers also strengthens their math and logical reasoning skills, and teaches students how to apply their knowledge outside the classroom walls in the real world.

Charged with the task of feeding a family of four nutritious food on a $100 budget provides a “real life” experience for these young consumers. Reading labels and making healthy food choices in addition to solving math and critical thinking problems at eleven math stations throughout the store makes for an enriching day at ShopRite. RoNetco Supermarkets, sponsor of the program, owns and operates ShopRite stores in Morris, Sussex, and Warren Counties.
