'Meal Planning for One or Two'     Send a link to a friend

[FEB. 24, 2004]  Data from the U.S. Census Bureau reflects that households and families have become smaller over time. From 1970 to 2000, households with only one or two people have increased from 46 to 59 percent. According to University of Illinois Extension, this means someone now lives alone in 25 percent of all U.S. households.

But eating alone is not just singles and seniors eating solo. Often teens fix their own meal after sports practice, and many parents dine alone after they're kept late at work. To help these individuals better plan and prepare a healthy meal for one or two, the Logan County unit of University of Illinois Extension will offer an educational program on "Meal Planning for One or Two." This program will be at noon on March 11, and a light lunch will be prepared for tasting.

Jananne Finck, nutrition and wellness educator with University of Illinois Extension, Springfield Center, will present the program. Participants will review healthy meal planning, share ideas for selecting foods and learn various ways to prepare meals for one or two people.
