Brown Bag Presentation - What's On Your Plate? - 10/14 1pm
Wednesday, October 14, 2015 - 13:00
Learn how to make smart food choices using the latest science-based advice on promoting health and reducing risk of major chronic diseases in the Dietary Guidelines for Americans from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) which is updated every five years.
We will look more closely at the recommendations for the USDA Food Pattern food groups in a booklet titled, What’s On Your Plate? produced by the National Institute on Aging (NIA), a part of the National Institute of Health (NIH) as a resource to help us develop our own personalized menus.
You are encouraged to bring Nutrition Facts labels of your favorite foods for our discussion on tips for getting the most health information from labels. All materials and a handout on Age Page: Healthy Eating After 50 will be provided. This session will be led by Shari Yoshida, member of Kaiser Senior Advisory Council and facilitator for Healthier Living, a program developed by Stanford School of Medicine.
