Pitt-Bradford plans classes on healthy eating

BRADFORD, Pa. – The University of Pittsburgh at Bradford will hold two classes this summer focused on healthier cooking and food choices.

“What’s for Dinner?” will take place from 6 to 8 p.m. June 24 in Room 200 of the Seneca Building at 2 Main St. in Bradford. The class will cover guidelines and ideas for preparing healthy and easy meals. Topics include shopping and preparing tips, reading labels, testing recipes, getting children involved and reference resources. Instructor Geraldine Steele will also cover nutrition basics and the impact of sugar on health.

“Food Choices – How They Affect You” will take place from 6 to 8 p.m. July 15 in the Seneca Building. This class explores the difference between the healthy eating pyramid and the USDA food pyramid, how processed foods affect health, what to eat to maintain energy, how sugar and artificial sweeteners affect the body and why low-fat items are not always a good choice. Handouts and reference information will be provided.

Each class has a fee of $29. For more information or to register, contact the Division of Continuing Education and Regional Development at (814)362-5078 or email [email protected]
