Reviewers Comments: This resource provides six nutrition and physical activity workshops that are interactive and easy to conduct in many community settings, such as community centers or places of worship. The lessons are based on the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans and MyPlate. Topics include making healthy food taste good, making quick and healthy meals and snacks, eating on a budget, losing and maintaining weight, creating a healthy lifestyle, and fitting in physical activity. The workshops are designed for adults and can be tailored to your audience.

For each workshop, the guide includes supply lists, preparation instructions, a detailed outline and an easy-to-follow lesson plan. General recipes are included, without nutrition information. Each workshop is approximately 1 hour long. Preparation time will vary based on the instructor and which activities are selected, but will likely be between 30-90 minutes. Corresponding handouts are included, as well as a list of other resources that can be used. Most resources are free, but some additional materials such as food and photocopying will have a cost. Surveys are included as part of each workshop and may be used as an evaluation component. Workshops may be taught as stand-alone workshops or as a series. They do not need to be presented consecutively.
