Learn nutritional literacy at Manchester 3/23

MANCHESTER –  March is National Nutrition Month, and the Manchester library branch, 21 Colonial Dr., will host a workshop “Breaking Down Nutrition Labels,” 2 p.m. Monday March 23 to help people eat healthy meals.

Staff from the Center for Healthy Aging at Monmouth Medical Center’s Southern Campus will show the key parts of the nutrition label on packaged food items and the information you should pay most attention to.

They will also discuss how food labels relate to the chronic illnesses we see today, review the current nutritional guidelines from the Food and Drug Administration and offer strategies for making healthier food choices.

Light, healthy refreshments will be provided by the presenters.

The program is part of the library’s “Chapters of Health” series. The program is free and open to the public, but registration is required. Register online at www.theoceancountylibrary.org or telephone 732-657-7600.
