 Women as Nutritional Coaches:
Feeding and Leading Your Family to Healthy Preferences

In our hectic society, many women struggle to make healthy food choices for themselves and their families.  It can be seem daunting to fight the food marketing messages and raise children who consume more than chicken nuggets and fruit punch.  Is the answer to forbid all “junk foods?”  What about our partners? Is it possible to motivate another person to change their ways?  What are some of the health conditions we face that a healthier diet could help with?  How can we prepare healthy meals that taste great?

"February’s "Women Leading Wellness" will tackle these important questions in a panel discussion with plenty of time available for audience participation.
