KDMC to host event for families
ASHLAND— Leading a healthy lifestyle through better nutrition and increasing physical activity is a goal for most families. Busy schedules and budgeting for healthy foods can be a problem. King’s Daughters is hosting Family Meals Matter starting at 5:30 p.m. and lasting until 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 6th. Family Meals Matter will take place at King’s Daughters Health Education Center, lower level of Lexington Avenue parking garage. RSVPs are required to 606-408-1560.
Families will learn the importance of family meal time thanks to culinary specialist Chris Willett of Gordon Food Service, who is back by popular demand. Chef Chris will prepare quick, healthy dishes that families can enjoy together. In addition to the live cooking demonstrations, families can taste the food and will receive healthy eating tools and handouts.
“We will have something for everyone and can help families kick start their journey to healthier living,” said Kim Bayes, King’s Daughters lifestyle change coach. “We know families that eat meals together are healthier, but it can be difficult. We can help families figure out how to find time to eat more meals together.”
Family Meals Matter is co-sponsored by Boyd and Greenup County Extension Offices for Family and Consumer Sciences. For additional information, visit us online at kdmc.com or call 1-888-377-KDMC (5362).
