Dining with Diabetes

Changing your diet can be a real challenge, especially when Diabetes is involved. We can help you meet this challenge!

Making smart meal choices is important for diabetes management but healthy eating can be challenging. Dining with Diabetes is a four-part cooking school program that teaches healthy (and tasty!) food preparation techniques to help individuals control their diabetes. The program includes healthy meal demonstrations, taste-testing, resources to take home and discussions about carbohydrates, fats and vitamins.

Classes are held at the Clermont Extension Office, located at the Clermont County Fairgrounds’ 4-H Hall and Jungle Jim’s International Market. The program is presented by Clermont Extension in partnership with The Pill Box Pharmacy of Amelia and Jungle Jim’s International Market.
