Interested in making healthier eating choices but not sure where to start? Join us for this interactive workshop as we learn about the building blocks of nutrition, including food groups, portion sizes and building a healthy plate. You’ll boost your nutrition knowledge and walk away with realistic strategies for improving your eating habits!

If you’ve ever thought to yourself, “I want to eat healthy, but it’s too expensive,” then this workshop is for you! Join us as we learn about how to make healthy eating choices on a budget, including meal planning and grocery shopping tips and tricks.

Nutrition labels are a great tool for making healthier eating choices when shopping for food, but they can be overwhelming if you’re not sure what to look for. In this workshop, we will take a closer look at each of the components of the nutrition label and learn how to use the information to make healthy eating easy.
