Nutrition Presentations

If you skip breakfast, you are more likely to be overly hungry later. And then, you’re more likely to overeat at lunch and/or dinner. No calories saved!

Do yourself a favor, and learn more about healthy eating habits!

  • Nutrition Basics:  This presentation gives an overview of the essentials of healthy eating. It covers the basics of calories, how to read a food label, what an actual serving size is, how to make your own healthy plate, skills and tips to incorporate healthy eating into your busy life and how to set achievable goals.

“After attending a Health Nutrition workshop, I was amazed at all the choices and requests that I could make when ordering my food. Also, I discovered that eating healthy is cheap and that it only takes simple planning and reading the label."
