New program to help make wise food choices
By Katie Phillips
KC extension agent

KAUFMAN–Nutrition classes are being offered locally to help residents learn how to plan and serve healthy meals.
The classes are based on the recommendations of MyPyramid, which was developed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
The series of classes begin from 1-3 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 10, at the Kaufman County Extension office.
Those attending the class will learn how to apply three keys to good health: variety, moderation and physical activity.
“There is no ‘perfect’ food that will give you all the nutrients you need,” nutrition specialist Sharon Francey Robinson with Texas AgriLife Extension Service said.
Although many foods are rich sources of certain vitamins and minerals, every food lacks some of those essential nutrients.
“If you eat only a few kinds of foods, you’re missing out on some important nutrients that you need to remain healthy,” Robinson said.
Robinson advises people to eat a variety of choices from all five of the food groups illustrated in MyPyramid.
Another important key to eating healthfully is moderation, Robinson said.
“When shopping or eating out, select foods and beverages with the least amount of saturated or trans fat, cholesterol, sodium, added sugar or alcohol,” she advised.
Another important part of feeding your family is finding bargains at the grocery store.
This can be a challenge, especially if money is tight.
Three ways that consumers can stretch their food dollars are by planning meals, shopping from a list and choosing store brands instead of national brands, Extension nutrition specialist Jenna Anding said.
“They can also use unit pricing to compare prices,” she added.
To learn more about feeding your family in the best way possible and to get healthy eating tips, contact Katie Phillips, County Extension agent, (972) 932-9069 and ask about nutrition education classes available in your community.
Education programs of Texas AgriLife Extension Service are open to all people without regard to race, color, sex, disability, religion, age, or national origin.
