Lakeshore Medical Center Eat Healthy, Be Active

February 11, 18 and 25 (Thursdays)
4-5 p.m. EST
Online via Zoom

MSU Extension nutrition and physical activity programs provide participants with tips and tricks to include healthy choices into any lifestyle and budget. Our nutrition programs are funded by the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program – Education and the Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program. Both programs aim to reach limited resource audiences, who are eligible for one or more of the following programs: Free/reduced school lunch; Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservation (FDPIR), Head Start, SNAP Bridge Card/EBT, WIC, and other assistance programs. We aim to have at least half of every class qualify by income.

Registration is intended for Michigan residents. Extension services are available in every state, and we encourage you to reach out to your local network for similar programming.

These courses will all be held virtually, utilizing Zoom. You will receive additional information for Zoom before the program begins. 

This program aims to help adults improve their nutrition and make small changes for a lifelong impact

Over the course of 3 lessons, we will discuss:

  • Reducing sugar, sodium, and fat
  • Portion sizes
  • Modifying a recipe
  • How to read a food label
  • Healthy drink options
  • Healthy options as a lifestyle
  • Healthy meals on a budget
We will also be going over light, low-impact physical activity each lesson.  We will go over basic movements that help improve and maintain strength and balance.
