Importance of Healthy Eating

In recognition of National Nutrition Month in March, this video highlights how healthy eating and lifestyle changes can promote better health. Healthy Eating classes are beneficial in helping older adults learn about portion control, cooking nutritious meals and label reading including education on the different food groups as well as fats and sweets. Participants, like Steve Bennett in this video, also learn goal setting, problem solving and management of dietary patterns. Thank you to Ethos and Kit Clark Senior Services for their participation in this video and to the Boston Elderly Commission, Brockton Neighborhood Health Center, Montachusett Opportunity Council, Southern Jamaica Plain Health Center and the Wang YMCA of Chinatown for providing photos.
