Eat. Move. Repeat.
Eat Healthy, Be Active is a nutrition and physical activity program for adults. It promotes living healthy to reduce the risk of obesity and chronic disease. Participants learn the skills needed to make healthy eating and regular physical activity a part of their lifestyle.
Each class is about one hour. There are six classes in the series. Participants receive stretch bands for physical activity and a certificate of completion.
Class series are taught throughout the community, including but not limited to community centers, churches, schools and local MSU Extension offices. Group series are available if there are six to 15 people, and at least half of the group is Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) eligible. If you are interested in scheduling or participating in an Eat Healthy, Be Active program contact your local MSU Extension office.
"I look at what I put on my plate and see if it looks like the MyPlate picture. I do it that way all the time now; it doesn’t seem right not to… my doctor said my cholesterol is too high…I really think this is helping." MSU Extension nutrition education series program participant
