Dining With Diabetes
Do you or a member of your family have diabetes? Is planning meals a real struggle? The Washington County Extension Office is offering a Dining with Diabetes program that may be right for you. You will learn how to prepare healthy meals that have less fat, sugar and salt without cutting out taste. Call today and get on the road to healthier living.
The Ohio State University Washington County Extension Office will be offering a Dining with Diabetes class Tuesdays, August 7, 14 & 21, 2012, at 2-4pm at the Extension Office. Dining with Diabetes is a once a week class that runs for three weeks. This class is open to those with diabetes, their family members and caretakers. The class is FREE, but space is limited and pre-registration is required.
Attendees will learn how to prepare meals that are healthy, easy to make and taste good. Participants will have the chance to taste a variety of recipes, plus learn up-to-date information on nutrition, meal planning, exercise and how to understand common diabetes-related medical tests. Recipe booklets and handouts will be given to each participant.
Diabetes is a very serious and costly disease, but research has shown that those who learn to manage their blood glucose (sugar) level, eat a healthy diet and exercise regularly can lower their risks of complications and lead a healthier and more productive life.
Dining with Diabetes is offered statewide and is sponsored by Ohio State University Extension.
