Ames, Iowa -- “Food and Fun for Healthy Families” is the theme of a new full-color calendar offered by Iowa State University Extension. Each month features an easy-to-prepare recipe plus menu ideas and an activity tip.

“Our goal is to give families quick, monthly reminders of things they can do to be more healthy,” said Peggy Martin, ISU Extension coordinator for Expanded Food and Nutrition Education and Family Nutrition Programs.

This is the eleventh year that ISU has printed a nutrition calendar but the first year it has been made available for public purchase. More than 230,000 copies of the English and Spanish versions have been distributed for use in nutrition programs across the country and in Guam.

Single copies of the 12-month calendar are $4 (plus handling) and may be ordered from ISU Extension’s Online store at www.extension.iastate.edu/store. Quantity discounts of  the English and Spanish versions also are available for orders of 50, 100 or 175 copies.
