WHAT EDUCATORS SAY ABOUT OUR PROGRAM

“Full of good information for the students. They asked questions and were really interested in the topic. I had them write an essay about the session – what they learned, new information, old information, and how they could apply it to their lives. I was expecting a sentence or 2, instead, I received a true essay of their thoughts. Very impressive. They actually paid attention!”​

 
 

HEALTHFUL EATING

Heart disease, type 2 diabetes, obesity, certain cancers, and other diseases are heavily influenced by diet and lifestyle. Students learn about the connections between the Standard American Diet and health, and discuss ways that informed dietary choices can help prevent or relieve diseases. We also explore how modern farming and agricultural practices contribute to present-day public health concerns. The latest meat and plant-based food science technologies are also discussed.
