  Purpose

El Valor de Nuestra Salud [The Value of Our Health] is a 5-year study (2010-2014) involving grocery stores in San Diego County funded by the National Cancer Institute. The purpose of the study is to determine whether an in-store program can promote healthy foods through grocery stores. Eighteen stores in San Diego County will participate in El Valor de Nuestra Salud. The stores that participate in this study will be randomly assigned to either the intervention (program and evaluation) or control (evaluation only) group. We will test various strategies to promote healthy food shopping among customers of small-to-medium size Latino/Hispanic grocery stores. These strategies include changes to the store environment, food marketing efforts, and training of sales associates. Our evaluation protocol will determine whether the project is successful at improving aspects of the store and the employees, as well as whether customers shop for and eat healthier food products. The primary aim of the study is to evaluate the impact of the El Valor de Nuestra Salud intervention on consumption of fruits and vegetables among store customers.
