On July 10, New Milford Hospital will kick off an "Eat Smart, Play Hard, Have Fun" series designed to help families learn how to plan healthy meals, work toward a healthy weight and stay active as a family.

Classes will run from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at a variety of locations to promote family activities.

Each class is built around the core principles that good nutrition, regular exercise and behavior change drive healthy weight maintenance, not dieting.

The goal of the program is to help change behaviors so that the entire family adopts healthy dietary choices and engages in regular exercise.

Cost is $50 per family.

Pre-registration is requested by calling toll-free 800-350-1595 or visiting www.newmilfordhospital.org.
