Free Dining with Diabetes Class offered in Wood County

Ohio State University Extension Wood County is offering a series of Dining with Diabetes classes starting next month.  According to Susan Zies, Extension Educator Family and Consumer Sciences, “never before have we had such a demand for these classes across the state, as Ohio and our country face many challenges with the growing diabetic epidemic.”

 

Dining with Diabetes is an exciting program for people with diabetes and/or their caretakers or for those who want to learn to eat healthier.  The free Dining with Diabetes class is a series of three classes.  Participants will receive a recipe booklet, information on cooking with low/no sugar, diabetic food preparations, lecture from a registered dietician, and cooking demonstrations at each session.  Classes will be held at the Ohio State University Extension Wood County office from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 Noon, May 11, 18 and 25, 2016. Participants must attend all three classes.

 

This is what previous participants had to say, “I loved the class, great ideas and great food and it is nice to meet new people.” “Great information. Good interaction.” “Informative and needed. I enjoyed the class.”

 

People with diabetes, as well as their family members or caretakers, are encouraged to attend.  For more information or to learn how to register, please call the Ohio State University Extension Office at 419-354-9050.  Seating is limited, registrations will be on a first come basis.

 

Here is a recipe from the Dining with Diabetes class that you may enjoy.
