I am so excited to announce the start of our first Keep It Healthy for Life Kids edition this Saturday October 22nd at 10am in the Community Room at the Poughkeepsie Galleria. This class is a first of its kind we are taking children out of their school and doctor’s offices and discussing nutrition and health in a real setting surrounded by all of life’s temptations. This class is geared towards children 7-11 year of age and their parents. We will be meeting once a month on a Saturday at 10am. The class will discuss healthy eating topics including MyPlate, how to pack a healthy breakfast, dinner on a budget and dining out in the food court. We also will incorporate exercise as well as a cooking demonstration every session. The hope is that we will teach our children ways to eat healthy preventing childhood disease like obesity, diabetes, high cholesterol and hypertension to name a few. We here at Digestive Disease Center teamed up with TLC Pediatrics as well as Children’s medical group to put together the best possible class for our children. Hope to see you there. Spots are limited so call our office to make a reservation. (845)-896-0736 or (845) 452-9800. I look forward to meeting everyone on Saturday!! We will be sampling different vegetables this class.
