Nutrition Educator, UCCE Butte County / Cluster
I am proud to know that I am part of a great program that assists low-income communities to maintain a healthier lifestyle. When participants increase their physical activity and improve their food choices, they improve the lives of their families. Parents often believe that following a healthy diet is costly and out of their reach. It gives me great pleasure to educate parents about simple but effective and nutritious changes they can implement to benefit their families. Parents often leave our lessons feeling empowered and knowing they can make positive changes with the food and beverages they consume and the way they are prepared.
