As a general rule, your healthiest foods are the ones around the outside of the store. The center of the store is mostly processed foods, foods that aren't as healthy.
There's a really neat book called "Eat This, Not That!" that I use to do my grocery shopping for all of the "middle of the store" foods. Mostly I buy produce, skim milk, eggs, plain yogurt, Campbell's Select soups, canned veggies, frozen fruits and veggies.
Check out that book. It'll give you some good ideas. A good rule of thumb is that the less processed it is, the healthier it is. If it grows or was alive, it's good for you.

get lean meats:turkey,chicken,beef,tuna in water or if you are vegetarian,get beans :D
get vegetables:vary the colours,lettuce,carrots,tomatoes,cabbage,broccoli
get fruits:fresh,canned or dried,they are all good!
and some basics:chili sauce,low-fat mayo,peanut butter(i prefer nutella),skimmed/low-fat milk.
