Healthy Eating Lifestyles for Children with Challenges

Refocus on good nutrition once holiday treats are cleared away. Optimize your own nutrition for a better chance of helping others with theirs. Join us for a discussion of the research-based New American Plate.

This simple meal planning method reduces risk of cancer, heart disease and supports weight control. We will use the New American Plate as a springboard to troubleshoot your own nutrition concerns, whether for yourself, clients, students or loved ones with Behavioral Health diagnoses.

Presented by Lynee Metzger, M.S., R.D. from Saint Clare's Behavioral Health Division. Registration required.

To register please call 973-940-3194.
