Let’s Make Better Food Choices

Marquetta Anderson, East Baton Rouge and East Feliciana Parish Nutrition Educator, leads a discussion on nutrition at Bishop Ott’s Women’s Shelter on Oct. 26, 2015.

Baton Rouge, La. - The SU Ag Center’s Families First-Nutrition Education and Wellness System Program (FF-NEWS), continues to cultivate partnerships with inner city social service programs and organizations.

On October 26, 2015, East Baton Rouge & East Feliciana Parish Nutrition Educator, Marquetta Anderson, educated the participants at Bishop Ott’s Women’s Shelter on the importance of making better food choices.

Following the lesson, Mrs. Anderson opened the floor for questions and a group discussion. The ladies were especially interested in daily water intake recommendations, reading nutrition labels, and how to decipher whole grains.

“We appreciate the work that the SU Ag Center and Mrs. Anderson do here at the shelter. She has been coming to us, consistently, for over a year and were glad to have her,” said Ms. Reid, Daytime Program Coordinator.

While Mrs. Anderson prepared their fresh fruit salads, the ladies shared what changes they planned on making in their diets and food selection going forward.
