Are you a parent or do you know a parent who could use some motivation and support to “up your game” on some of your health related habits?
Maybe you’ve gained the “COVID-19 pounds” I’ve often heard lately, or find yourself not getting in as many steps as you normally would? Maybe “treats” you typically only allow yourself occasionally have moved into the habit category (someone who shall remain nameless, for example, had to stop buying ice cream for awhile because if it was in the house she would stress-eat the whole container)?
If one or more of these situations sounds familiar, or you know a parent who might benefit, read on.
Eating Smart Being Active
After adapting this curriculum to an online format that meets high standards for interactive, engaging learning, we are pleased to open registration for this series of nine online lessons for small groups of parents. ESBA teaches basic nutrition and cooking, how to save money on food budgets, and strategies to achieve a range of ability-based physical activity. Feeding picky eaters and minimizing food-related struggles with kiddos are among other popular topics of interest. Evaluations of these lessons show many positive results.

We continue to work on curricula teams with colleagues across the state and will open youth, senior, and general adult online programming soon. If you have interest in discovering how we can partner to offer online nutrition and cooking education please don’t hesitate to reach out to me.
We look forward to seeing you all in-person soon. Meanwhile, join us online and get motivated!
