Eat Smart, Live Strong program for Older Adults Starts April 4th

Eat Smart Live Strong

Changing habits is hard. Eat Smart, Live Strong is a four week course, targeted to older adults, that helps you focus your efforts on just two behaviors. By adopting and maintaining these two simple behaviors, participants can make a difference in their lives and health. The class meets for an hour and a half, once a week in the evenings, and will involve sampling simple, healthy meals and enjoying fun, lively activities as a group.
 
Good intentions and knowledge about health are not enough to maintain good health long term. As adults age, it’s important to take an active role in managing your health, otherwise your health status will not improve and may even decline more rapidly. Each session in Eat Smart, Live Strong focuses on changing behavior by guiding participants in learning and practicing new skills.
 
This 4-class series will be held on Tuesday evenings in April, beginning April 4th, from 5 to 6:30 PM at the Cass County Extension Office. The program is open to anyone age 50 and older who is interested in learning easy ways to make smart food choices and add more movement to their daily routine. There is no cost but pre- registration is recommended to prepare materials and food samples. Stop by the Cass County Extension Office or call 712-243-1132 for more information or to register. The sessions will be led by Barb Fuller, MA, RD, LD, the ISU Extension and Outreach Nutrition and Wellness Specialist for SW Iowa.
