One of the hardest things for an adult who is constantly on the go is to eat healthy. You have worked all day and often times it is simply easier to just go by the “burger joint” or some other restaurant to pick up something for supper. The bottom line though is this type of lifestyle isn’t healthy for you, especially as you grow older. The goo d news is that help is on the way.
Thanks to a collaborative effort by the Jackson Parish Library and the LSU Ag Center you can now take the “Let’s Eat for the Health of it” free adult nutrition class beginning the first Tuesday in September. Classes will run from 12:00-12:30 PM and take place each Tuesday through October. All you need is a computer, tablet or a smart phone.
The class is being taught by a trained nutrition educator with the LSU Ag Center and you will learn among other things:
- Healthy eating and food planning
- Managing your food dollar
- Being physically active your way
- Keeping your food safe
