Eat Smart New York
Eat Smart New York (ESNY) Nutrition Education is FREE to all Food Stamp participants and those eligible to receive Food Stamps. ESNY is an exciting program where nutrition educators will meet with you either individually or in a group in your home or community setting, to help you learn about: nutrition, meal planning, healthy food shopping on a budget, cooking and food safety, weight control and physical activity, and much more. The program information is based upon the following:
Eat fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and nonfat or low-fat milk or milk products every day.
Be physically active every day as part of a healthy lifestyle.
Balance calories eaten from foods and beverages with calories used when being physically active.
Nutrition education is free and the only cost to you is your time.
Referrals to Eat Smart NY are accepted throughout the year and may be made by contacting Dave Armstrong or Kim Sopczyk.
