[MAY 15, 2006]  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 Extension office.
