NEW YORK — Bogopa USA’s Food Bazaar and Food Dimensions food stores are distributing the Latino Nutrition Coalition’s healthy eating guide for Hispanics. Camino Mágico pamphlets are available for free at nine Food Bazaar stores in New York and one in New Jersey, and two Food Dimensions stores in New York. Camino Mágico provides recipe ideas, details on how to read a nutrition label, portion control tips, and other information. "As the incidence of diabetes and obesity is on the rise among the Latino population, we want to be able to educate and offer our customers better alternatives but with the same great taste of their food from home,” Food Bazaar spokeswoman Suzanne Kuczun said. “Camino Mágico fits in perfectly with our desire to do this by offering traditional recipes with healthier alternative ingredients." Other retailers distributing the pamphlet include Carnival Stores in Texas; Shaw’s in Connecticut; and Publix in Florida. “Traditional Latin American cuisine is rich in flavor and is very healthy. These traditions get passed down from generation to generation. We are encouraging Latinos to reconnect with these traditions in order to improve their health," LNC program manager Kezia Frayjo said.
