Over the past few months, our family has been learning more about the PC Guiding Stars Program. I first started tracking our healthy eating progress back in May. My family tracked our stars and were more conscious of what foods we were buying. Little One attended a Kids Cooking Class at the PC Cooking School. Not only did she learn how to make some delicious menu items, but she also actively looked for Star items when gathering the ingredients to make her dishes after the cooking class. Her motto is “Let’s only get items with 3 stars”.
Eat More Stars Event
Speaking of stars, did you know that during the the Eat More Stars Event, you can earn points for every star rated product you buy? There’s an #EatMoreStars Event happening now until September 17, 2015. You can earn* PC® points for making nutritious food choices.
Each week of the Eat More Stars Event, load the exclusive PC Plus offer, and you’ll automatically earn points for every star rated product that you purchase:
• 10 pts for each 1 star rated product.
• 30 pts for each 2 star rated product.
• 60 pts for each 3 star rated product.
*Must be a registered PC Plus member to participate.
Racking up points is easy enough if you buy a lot of produce! Fruits and vegetables are where I find we get the most stars. It’s back to school time, so this is a great opportunity while you’re already buying fruits and veggies for your kids’ lunches!

Loblaws is really rewarding me to #EatMoreStars! Between all the fruits, vegetables, meat/fish/other protein and healthy grains, it really is easy to acquire lots of points since you will find that those products are star rated.
If you’re looking for back to school lunch ideas, I’ve created 16 Back-to-School Lunch Ideas. You’ll be sure to find lots of star rated products for making these healthy lunches when you’re at your local Loblaws, Fortinos, Zehrs, Independent, valu-mart, Real Canadian Superstore, !
