Nutrition For Diabetes: How to Read a Food Label? FOOD 109.54 CRN 16902

with Marissa Chiapperino


Registration unavailable

Did you know food labels are more of a marketing tool than they are an aid for health? You may have noticed a few years ago the food label got a face lift. As with any change, it can make breaking down the nutrition in food feel complicated. Come learn how to pull apart thelabel line by line, learn what the catchy phrases mean and apply them to your health goals.  It will be helpful to have taken the other classes in this series “What is a Carbohydrate,” “What is a Protein” and “What is a Fat” but is not required.


Grilled Swordfish and Pepper Salad; Chicken, Lemon and Olive Bake; Sweet Potato Berry Muffins; Easy Breakfast Salad; Cheddar and Herb Savory Overnight Oats

There will be a One-hour education session and Q&A with instructor and registered dietitian, Marissa Chiapperino, in addition to a Two-hour hands-on cooking activity in which you will prepare and take home 4-5 recipes that align with the educational topic discussed this session. Please wear close-toed shoes, preferably non-slip (sneakers will work just fine) and bring note taking materials and 4-5 meal containers to take food home.
