'Eat Smart' family course on tap
New Milford Hospital will offer a wellness program for families, "Eat Smart, Play Hard, Have Fun," starting April 24.
The eight-part series is designed to help families learn how to plan healthy meals, work towards a healthy weight and stay active as a family.
Classes will meet Tuesdays through June 12 from 6 to 7:30 p.m.
Each class is built around the core principles that good nutrition, regular exercise, and behavior change drive healthy weight maintenance, not dieting.
Classes are held at a variety of locations to promote family activities.
Course highlights include a cooking demonstration with a professional chef, outdoor adventures at the Pratt Nature Center and a graduation Party at the March Farms in Bethlehem.
The cost is $50 per family.
Pre-registration is requested by calling 800-350-1595 or visiting www.newmilfordhospital.org.
