    The most popular group!  Try some new healthy foods.  You never know, you might end up with a new favorite!

    Often we eat without thinking about it.  This might lead us to make unhealthy choices.  Learn how to eat more mindfully.
  • July 16th: Healthy Eating On the Run  
    Summer vacations may have your family eating on-the-go.  Find out how to identify healthier fast food and convenience store options & learn how to prepare quick and portable snacks.

    Come learn some tips for how to “make-over” some of your favorite recipes and how to create a healthy balanced meal.
