    Summer days are often spent at the beach and what is a day on the beach without a bag of chips and some drinks? Unfortunately, those extra calories can add up quickly. You can still have fun at the beach and enjoy delicious snacks without eating junk food. On Friday, visit ShopRite Hoboken’s registered dietitian, Jenna Stock, to check out some healthy snack options from 3-5PM. After leaving, you’ll never want those bag of chips again {hopefully!}.
