The “Eating Smart Staying Active” component will offer lessons on managing the family food budget which will include menu planning ideas for quick, easy, healthy and low-cost meals and snacks. Each week there will be cooking demonstrations which will provide participants an opportunity to prepare and taste foods using healthy low-cost recipes. The family skills component will include positive behavior management techniques to encourage healthy behaviors, build strong communication and increase cooperation within the family unit.
