'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.
