Everyone wants to get the best bang for their buck and eat healthy, so participants from Community Connections Day Habilitation 1 and 2 in Oneonta are participating in the Eat Smart New York program. Eat Smart New York, through Cornell Cooperative Extension, is designed to teach eligible individuals healthy food habits.
Nutrition Educator Christina Lathan visited Community Connections 1 on Monday for the first of six classes. This week's topic was back to basics, learning about healthy foods and lifestyle choices. In other classes participants will learn about the food pyramid, safe handling and storage of food and preparing quick and healthy meals.
After learning about different types of healthy fruits, veggies and grains, everyone at Community Connections helped prepare oatmeal banana splits made with fat free frozen yogurt, fresh bananas and whole grain oatmeal. Learning about food is fun, but the best part of the class was enjoying the snack!
