“Eating Smart and Moving More: Eating Smart at Home”, a program offered by the University of Tennessee Extension Service, challenges participants to make positive changes by improving diet quality and physical activity, food resource management, food safety and food security.

This is a free six-week class designed for parents and caregivers of children to learn the following:

•        Increase variety of foods eaten, especially fruits and vegetables

•        Eat together as a family

•        Increase daily physical activity and reduce screen time

•        Reduce portion sizes

Each class session will include an Eat Smart recipe that will be demonstrated during class and participants will be able to taste. Along with that, Move More activities will be incorporated into every session to encourage physical activity.

Eating Smart and Moving More meets for approximately one hour on Wednesdays at 11 a.m. starting Jan. 23, 2019 at the Lincoln County Extension office, 208 Davidson Street East, Fayetteville. All programs in Family and Consumer Sciences and UT Extension provides equal opportunities to all individuals in all program areas.
