Healthy Eating After 50—Presented by Visiting Nurse & Hospice of Fairfield Co
Wednesday,Jul, 3, 2019 @ 12:00 pm
Visiting Nurse & Hospice of Fairfield County will host a complimentary lunch at noon and informational program at 12:30 p.m. to explain sugars and fats for a healthy diet.
We often think of fats as unhealthy, but your body needs a limited amount of certain kinds of fats. Fats in your diet give you energy and also help your body absorb vitamins.
Choosing foods and beverages that give you the most nutrients for the calories consumed is one way to eat well. At the same time, it’s important to avoid “empty calories” — foods and drinks that are high in calories but low in nutrients.
You can have a chef-prepared, hot, nutritious lunch at the Senior Center, normally for $5, Monday through Friday (reservations have to be made by 11:15 a.m. the day of the lunch).
