Educating families on nutrition and healthy eating is crucial to help them make informed choices about the food they eat, and to improve their overall health and quality of life.
Limited access to healthy food options, lack of cooking equipment and financial constraints. We help develop strategies to address these challenges and provide practical solutions for families.
A Balanced Diet
We encourage families to eat a variety of foods from all food groups, including fruits and vegetables, whole grains, lean protein sources, and low-fat dairy products. Through video programming, our culinary team helps families understand how to choose nutrient-dense foods that provide important vitamins and minerals without adding excess calories.
Provide Meal Planning
Meal planning and preparation can be challenging for families. We provide recipes & practical tips on how to plan meals ahead of time, shop for healthy foods on a budget, and prepare meals using simple and affordable ingredients. Encourage families to cook meals in batches and freeze leftovers for later use.
Snacking is an important part of a healthy diet, but it can also be a source of unhealthy calories and added sugars. We encourage families to choose healthy snack options and help them understand how to read food labels to identify healthy snack options and avoid processed and high-sugar snacks.
We provide information on local food banks, government assistance programs, and community resources that can help families access healthy food options and learn more about nutrition and healthy eating.
