Diet & Nutrition Education

Everybody enjoys a fresh and tasty taco. How healthy are tacos though? They can be prepared with grilled chicken or ground turkey, filled with grilled vegetables, and served on a non-greasy corn tortilla.

Eating healthy does not mean to deprive individuals of their “favorite foods”. Through diet and nutrition education it can mainly provide individuals with the concepts and tools needed to make healthier decisions on the foods they consume. A healthy eating plan can reduce the risk of disease including heart disease and improve a person’s quality of life.
