As part of the Integrated Nutrition Education Program for the San Luis Valley, the instruction demonstrates how to prepare a new recipe each week, targeting positive eating behavior. The class meets from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. Monday evenings for the next 5 week in the Mountain Valley School cafeteria.

These free classes hope to instill life-long nutrition behaviors to prevent obesity, type 2 diabetes, cancer, and heart disease for children and their families. Take home recipes connected to lessons.

After the class the participants get to take home the ingredients to make the weekly dish at home. Last Monday’s meal was black bean and vegetable quesadillas with mango salsa. Delicious!

This program is made possible by a grant from LiveWell Colorado and funded in part by the Colorado Health Foundation. For more information contact Melissa at 719-580-6550.
