Prior to the new online course, the Healthy Teachers Program has been hosted in school districts throughout the U.S. providing in-person training that has resulted in teachers and school staff experiencing weight loss, lower blood pressure and lower cholesterol.
Although in-person classes will continue, the online option will allow more educators and school staff across the country to participate in the Healthy Teachers Program.
The two-hour online class focuses on the fundamentals of nutrition without being preachy or using any trendy diet plans but looks at easy to understand ways to make small changes every day. Along with the nutrition inspiration, it offers cooking demonstrations based on a budget of time and money that any busy adult can use to set themselves up for success. It is a fun, interactive class that breaks down simple nutrition into digestible information that everyone can use.
The class covers:
- Basic principles of eating a whole foods diet
- Tips for shopping economically while still making healthy choices
- Healthy cooking demonstrations and recipes
“This is not a diet program, but an open concept to basic nutrition that fits everyone,” said Marek.
