Eating Healthy – Fuel for Life


Eating Healthy – Fuel for Life

A large part of this balance is the food we eat.  In our budget conscience society of run here and hurry there, fast food has become a major source of our daily food intake.

Fast food tends to be high in calories and low in nutritional value.  One primary focus of this project is to encourage a diet high in fruits and vegetables grown right here in Kentucky.

All food is not created equal.  Through printed material, access to the internet, advisors and health fairs, participants will hear and read about well balanced meals.  Discussion of caloric and nutritional values will be initiated.  Mock meals will be made up and evaluated.

Kentucky Proud produce and retailers are to be a big part of this program.  Fruits, vegetables, beef and poultry will be made available at reduced or no cost.  A plan will be in place to supply free frozen produce in off seasons with the purchase of fresh produce in season.  Farmers markets will be set up to accommodate our participants or farm fresh produce will actually be delivered to them.

We will track the consumption of food and drink throughout the project.  Apps and/or websites will be used to obtain this data daily.
