"Eating healthy is so expensive! To be healthy I have to eat salads and make everything from scratch. I can’t eat the foods that are important in my culture or try foods from other cultures because they are unhealthy." We hear these misconceptions all the time and many of us start to believe they must be true. Eating a balanced diet can be accessible for all populations and there is no one ‘perfect’ diet. The first step in making nutrition available to a wider population is understanding that balanced eating comes in a variety of shapes and sizes. Food for a balanced diet can come from grocery stores, convenience stores, restaurants, food banks, home gardens, or farmers markets. Balance can be found in all different eating patterns around the world. This session will dispel common myths about nutrition and help you recognize that eating a balanced diet can be a reality for you too! We will also discuss nutrition services offered on campus by the Kendall Reagan Nutrition Center and access to resources to support your nutrition goals.
Goals and Target Audience:
Goals 1. Understand the composition of a balanced diet 2. Understand the composition of a balanced diet in different countries and geographical regions 3. Learn how to make a balanced diet work with any budget 4. Identify how to make balanced choices when eating out 5. Discuss how to make small changes towards eating a balanced diet Target Audience: 1. Individuals interested in learning what comprises a balanced diet 2. Individuals interested in learning about a balanced diet for a variety of audiences 3. Individuals interested in learning how a balanced diet can be accessible by all
