Department Hosts Talks on How to Add Vegetables to Diet
The Department of Nutritional Sciences organized two informational discussions as part of National Nutrition Month, which happens every March. Each discussion focused on ways that people can implement vegetables into their daily lives. The events were free and open to the public.
On March 22, 2010, Dr. Mary Dean Coleman-Kelly, assistant professor, gave a lunchtime talk, titled “Vary Your Veggies: How to incorporate them into a busy life,” at the State College Family YMCA, in the Teen Center Room.
On March 25, Dr. Kasia Kordas, assistant professor, gave a talk, titled “Eating vegetables and enhancing your health in quick and delicious ways,” at Potter Elementary School in Centre Hall, Pennsylvania. That event was co-organized with the Child Development and Family Council of Centre County.
“I realized in clinical practice that people know they should include vegetables in their diet, but the challenge is figuring out how to implement this recommendation into their busy daily lives,” says Lynn Parker Klees, RD, instructor. Klees and Dr. Dorothy Blair, assistant professor, helped organize the two events.
