Nutrition and Health-Related Programs Available from ISU Extension and Outreach
Iowa State University Extension and Outreach employees from Buchanan, Delaware, and Dubuque counties participated in a training held at Heartland Acres in Independence on January 9 to prepare them to deliver nutrition and health-related programs in their respective counties.
The programs are each designed to be approximately 45-60 minutes in length and are appropriate for a wide variety of audiences, such as church groups, philanthropic groups, senior citizens, parent groups, or others requesting presentations about general interest topics or about specific Extension activities.
The training was facilitated by Cindy Baumgartner, nutrition and health program specialist for Northeast Iowa, and included the following topics:
- MyPlate- appropriate for any audience interested in nutrition basics
- SafeFood for Groups- appropriate for any audience providing or selling food to consumer groups to learn and practice safe food handling practices
- Spend Smart. Eat Smart.- appropriate for anyone to learn strategies to save money on food expenses and incorporate new ideas into menu planning and shopping
- Eat Smart. Live Strong.- targeted to those 60 yrs. of age and above to promote increased fruit and vegetable consumption and 30 minutes or more of physical activity most days of the week
ISU Extension staff also learned about up-to-date information on food preservation methods for various foods, as well as other timely resources.
