Eat Smart, Live Strong

Eat Smart, Live Strong is designed to improve fruit and vegetable consumption and physical activity among 60-74 year olds. The program is delivered by a nutrition educator, includes four lessons, and focuses around two key messages: eat at least three and a half cups of fruits and vegetables per day, and participate in at least 30 minutes of physical activity most days of the week. Lessons are interactive and can include food preparation, physical activity, and opportunity for group discussion.

Reach Your Goals, Step by Step: Participants set goals for eating more fruits and vegetables and being more physically active and keeping record of their progress. They are encouraged to record their progress and are provided with tools to help.

Challenges and Solutions: Through a variety of activities participants seek solutions to the challenges they may face as they try to eat more fruits and vegetables and exercise more.

Colorful and Classic Favorites: Eating more fruits and vegetables is easy when participants add them to the "classics" - traditional dishes everyone already enjoys eating.

Eat Smart, Spend Less: In this session, participants explore ways to buy the fruits and vegetables they need within a limited budget.
