The Feeling Better Eat Well Program provides nutrition support to older adults living in the community who may face challenges related to nutrition and eating well or those who simply want to know how to eat better.
This is accomplished through a number of activities which include the following:
- Twice monthly, senior peer facilitated Diabetes Support Group, for older adults/caregivers living with Diabetes. This group meets on the second and fourth Tuesdays of the month in Room 2 at the Evergreen Seniors Community Centre from 9:00 to 10:00 a.m. $2.00 donation; All welcome!
- Nutrition education sessions (food demonstrations, cooking classes). Mark your calendar for a healthy cooking demonstration presented by the Guelph Family Health Team. Learn about the benefits of the food being prepared and enjoy a sampling when complete.
- Nutrition education displays
- Monthly food tasting events on the last Friday of the month from 10:30 a.m. to noon. Drop by the front lobby and sample new food ideas and chat with Lee who is a dietitian with Diabetes Care Guelph.
- Cultural food events
Participants gain support to reduce nutritional risk by learning to include healthier choices in their diet, address challenges with accessing and cooking nutritional foods, get information to support diet restrictions and enjoy opportunities to engage with others all the while sharing in delicious foods.
