U of I Extension offers three evenings of planning and cooking

[September 10, 2007]  If you have diabetes, choosing and preparing foods can be a real challenge. Learn about diabetes, including carbohydrates, fats, portion sizes, and ways to prepare foods that are low in sugar, fat and sodium. Dining with Diabetes classes are sponsored by University of Illinois Extension and offered locally.

"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 will be presented in three sessions: Oct. 9, 15 and 29 at the Logan County Extension office, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

The registration fee of $20 per person or $30 per couple includes class materials, recipe booklets and taste testing. Space is limited and advance registration is required.

For more details about this program or if you need reasonable accommodations to participate in this program, please contact the Logan County Extension office at 217-732-8223.

U of I Extension provides out-of-the-classroom educational opportunities that help you deal with the critical issues affecting your daily lives.
