HEALTHFUL EATING

digital & in-person

Healthful Eating introduces students to the links between the Standard American Diet and chronic health conditions, including heart disease, type 2 diabetes, certain cancers, and the concept of disease prevention and management through dietary and lifestyle choices. Additional subjects explored include the effects of modern agricultural practices on public health and the latest meat and plant-based food science technologies.

The digital version of Healthful Eating is 40 minutes in length.
