EAT HEALTHY, BE ACTIVE COMMUNITY EDUCATION
The Eat Healthy, Be Active community workshops were developed based on the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, 2010 and the 2008 Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans. Each of these six 1-hour workshops includes a lesson plan, learning objectives, talking points, hands-on activities, videos, and handouts. The workshops were designed for community educators, health promoters, dietitians/nutritionists, cooperative extension agents, and others to teach to adults in a wide variety of community settings. NEOP staff provide these workshops for adults in our CX3 Communities, and schools.
MyPlate is a reminder to find your healthy eating style and build it throughout your lifetime. Everything you eat and drink matters. The right mix can help you be healthier now and in the future. This means:
- Focus on variety, amount, and nutrition.
- Choose foods and beverages with less saturated fat, sodium, and added sugars.
- Start with small changes to build healthier eating styles.
- Support healthy eating for everyone.
