ABCs of childhood nutrition
Submitted By Renee Snyder
Childhood obesity has more than tripled in the past 30 years. The prevalence of obesity among children aged 6 to 11 years increased from 6.5 percent to 19.6 percent. Obesity among adolescents aged 12 to 19 years increased from 5.0 percent to 18.1 percent.
Join us for a class on healthy eating for school-aged children which includes basic nutrition information, involving kids in cooking and shopping, reducing childhood obesity and healthy snack and school lunch ideas for busy families. Learn how to make healthy lunch choices that the children will enjoy.
This free class is delivered by the St. Rose Hospital Registered Dietitians who will teach the necessary nutrition tools to keep your family healthy throughout the winter.
