Healthful Food Choices - 28 Classes for Healthful Eating

As you begin to work on increasing healthful eating as an outcome in your congregation, of course you look toward a goal of changes in environment and policy. Changes in the food environment at your church will model the healthful eating behaviors you endorse, introduce congregants and community members to new foods or new ways to cook that make their diets more healthful, and support the behavior changes that many of your members are working on.

This series of 28 classes is grouped into topics including: MyPlate, Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Starches & Pasta, Cooking on a Budget, Crock Pot 101, Growing & Using Herbs, Vegetable Side Dishes, Salads, Fruit Salads & Desserts, Planning a Good Dinner, Shopping & Reading Labels, and Purchasing Decisions.
