Last updated on September 22nd, 2021 at 07:42 am
Summary: With 18+ hour workdays, the stress of the weather, dealing with markets and policies, and limited nutritious, one-handed dining options, it is easy to put healthy eating on the back burner during the busy seasons of harvest and planting. Food in the Field is an online nutrition program seeking to nutritiously feed those who feed us in the field and everywhere in between. This webinar will cover valuable tools to help you plan ahead for the busy seasons as well as research supporting the role of nutrition in mental health and wellbeing.
Intended Audience: Farmers and their families, anyone interested in learning about a healthy eating pattern
Objectives: At the end of this webinar, participants will be able to….
1. Identify how to implement small shifts towards a healthy eating pattern
2. Utilize tools to create a healthy food environment at home and during the busy seasons of harvest and planting
3. Understand the research supporting diet’s role in reducing depression symptoms
