Free Diabetic Nutrition Class

 

An estimated 1.4 million people are diagnosed with diabetes every year in the U.S. A diet high in fat, cholesterol, and calories can increase your risk. With so much fast food and other quick, unhealthy snacks right at our fingertips, it is important to remind ourselves what a healthy diet really looks like and how it can benefit our everyday lives.

What we consume can affect our mood, energy levels, quality of sleep, and overall health. Typically, a healthy diet consists of high amounts of fiber and low amounts of fat, sugar, and sodium. It is widely known that fiber helps your digestion, but an equally important, lesser known fact is that it also helps your body to absorb vital nutrients from your food. Sodium, on the other hand, contributes to high blood pressure and strain on your kidneys. Similarly, high amounts of sugar puts a strain on your pancreas, limiting it’s ability to produce insulin.
Not only does whats in our food matter, but also when we consume it can also have a large effect on our health. Food is our body’s fuel and in this sense, it is easy to understand that our bodies must regularly be refueled. Keeping a consistent meal schedule helps to keep you energized while also boosting your metabolism!

At Cleveland Area Hospital, we care about every aspect of your health, whenever and wherever you are. That is why we would like to provide you with the knowledge and skills needed to stay healthy, even when we are not around. 
We currently offer a free nutrition class right here in our own facility, every first Wednesday of each month from 1:00 to 3:00 pm. Registered dietitian, Bonnie Johnson focuses on a nutritious diet that is crucial to a diabetic lifestyle. However, this class is for anyone who would like to attend, as a diabetic diet is an extremely healthy way to go for most everyone!

Free Children's Nutrition Class

 

Why should my child see a dietitian?    Our diet plays a crucial role in our everyday lives. What we eat and when we eat it can affect our mood, energy levels, quality of sleep, and overall health.    This class intends to focus on child obesity and high cholesterol. While high cholesterol seems to be most apparent in adults, it also affects children. High cholesterol in children can lead to health issues such as heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, and so on. High cholesterol is most often linked to genetics, diet and obesity. Finding the right diet that is both appealing and healthy for your child can be difficult. Dietitian Bonnie Johnson can help ease that struggle and help set you and your child on the path to a healthier lifestyle!
