A representative from the Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program, part of Ohio State University's Extension Services, will visit Rodman Public Library on Tuesdays in May.
The programs will include food tasting, money saving tips, easy recipes, healthy snack ideas and more. Free gifts will also be given to those in attendance. Lessons will include "plan shop save", "vary your veggies", "build strong bones", "make a change" and more. The goal of the Expanded Food and Nutrition Education program is to teach families to plan and shop for meals and snacks that are healthy and within their budget. By the end of the program, participants will be able to plan a main dish from foods on sale, make a shopping list for that main dish, identify the main parts of the "Nutrition Facts" panel of a food label and use unit pricing to determine the best buy between products. Programs will take place at 5:30 p.m. in the Main Library Conference Room, on Tuesdays May 1, 8, 15 and 22. Registration is required for these free seminars, and can be made by calling 330-830-7700, ext. 118.
