Ohio State University Extension Wood County is teaming up with Meijer Stores to offer a series of Dining with Diabetes classes this April. According to Susan Zies, Extension Educator- Family and Consumer Sciences, “Never before have had we had such a demand for these classes across the state, as Ohio and our country face many challenges with the growing diabetic epidemic.”
Dining with Diabetes is an exciting program for people with diabetes and/or their caretakers or family members, who want to learn to eat healthier. The free Dining with Diabetes class is a series of three classes. Participants will receive recipe booklets, information on cooking with low/no sugar, diabetic food preparations, lecture from a registered dietician, and cooking demonstrations at each session. Classes will be held from 10:00am t0 12:00pm., April 9, 16, and 23. Participants must attend all three classes.
This is what previous participants had to say, “I have enjoyed the class very much. Learned a lot. It was really nice to be able to taste the food. Also enjoyed the interaction with class members.” and “I loved the class – so glad I came. The food has been great.” “What a great class- Lots of good information regarding what to eat or not to eat, and how it affects your health. The food prepared for us was very good, healthy and tasty!”
