If you have diabetes, choosing and preparing
foods can be a real challenge. To help, the University of Illinois
Extension sponsors Dining with Diabetes classes. Learn about
diabetes, including carbohydrates, fats, portion sizes and ways to
prepare foods that are low in sugar, fat and sodium.
"Those attending will learn more about healthy ways to prepare foods
when one has diabetes," explains Jananne Finck, nutrition educator
with the U of I Extension in Springfield. "We'll have cooking
demonstrations, and those attending will taste different recipes."
"Everyone will get materials on diabetes and receive recipes to help
them plan healthy meals at home," adds John Fulton, county director
for Logan County Extension.
Dining with Diabetes is a three-part series meeting on Mondays, June 12,
19 and 26. Sessions are from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Logan County

booklets and taste testing. Space is limited and advance
