At every Check Pick Up visit, our staff hands out nutrition education packets in our Nutrition Ed classes. In these packets we discuss health issues and eating habits. For example, how do you get a picky eater to eat vegetables? When you come in for a certification/recertification visit we explain the importance of healthy eating. At every cert, recert and mid cert visit you normally receive sheets of different colors (depending on how many children are being seen and their ages) to fill out in regards to their eating habits. We can assist on  ideas for eating healthy and living a healthy lifetsyle for you and your children.

There are several things you can do to insure a healthy lifestyle. Healthy weight, daily exercise and amounts of food consumpption is key. For more information you can visit the Center for Disease and Control or talk to your service associate regarding any concerns you may have.
