NEW!! Spot the Salt
Friends, let’s face it…In the chaos of our day-to-day lives, sometimes processed and pre-packaged foods are the fastest and cheapest way to put meals on the table. But how much do we really know about the contents of these foods? The fact is that 90% of Americans over age 2 consume too much sodium, and about 65% of our excessive sodium intake comes from foods we buy at retail stores, such as the grocery. During this presentation, you will learn to:

  • Shop Smart: Identify the sodium content in the foods you buy, and how to make small changes to your shopping list that make a BIG difference!
  • Cook Smart: Learn how to recreate some of the most popular processed food items using more fresh ingredients and significantly less sodium.
  • Live Smart: Learn how excessive sodium intake affects your health and contributes to a variety of chronic illnesses. Go home with ten helpful tips to help you reduce your sodium intake and increase your overall wellness!

NEW!! Making Wellness a Family Event
We all know that our health is important, but sometimes it’s hard to incorporate wellness into our daily lives without taking time away from the family. So, what’s the solution? Make wellness a family event! During this presentation, we will focus on nutrition and physical activity as a fun and exciting thing families can do together! You will learn: 

  • Creative and safe ways to involve your family in the kitchen during meal preparation. After all, if they help make it they will (hopefully) help eat it!
  • Easy and original physical activity ideas that are easy to incorporate into your existing schedule.
  •  How to engage in family wellness activities in your community.
