Good nutrition is an important part of staying healthy, so, during the month of March, fifteen patients attended a nutrition workshop at our Norwalk site. Today was the final day. Heather used a mock grocery tour to review the 5 week workshop. The patients were told to pretend Heather was going shopping with them, and knew nothing about eating healthy. They had to educate her as they walked through every aisle. For the food demo, Heather made veggies with brown rice for a total of $5.00 to feed 10 people. How successful was the course? Based on the comments, it appears to have been a great success.
