Dining with Diabetes in Spanish and English

Ahora es el momento para hacerse cargo de su diabetes!

Now is the time to take charge of your diabetes!

Following a careful meal plan is the first step in managing diabetes and keeping blood sugars in a therapeutic range.

Do you know how to make a daily meal plan?  Do you know which foods contain carbohydrate?  Do you know which foods to avoid that are higher in added sugars, saturated fat, and sodium?

Dining with Diabetes will be offered in English and in Spanish this spring. The class helps by teaching persons with diabetes ways to reduce sugar, salt, and fat in foods, without giving up good taste.

On March 31st, Cooperative Extension will begin a series of classes designed for Spanish speaking people with diabetes and their family members.  The Spanish series will be held in Newark on Thursdays, March 31, April 7, and April 14 from 6:00 – 8:30pm includes diabetes education, cooking demonstrations, and tasting of healthy foods.  After each lesson, participants will take home recipes and knowledge about how to manage diabetes in their lives. A series in English will begin in Dover on April 14th. It will be offered on Thursdays  April 14th, April 21st, April 28th and May 5th from 5:30-7:30.

Registration for Dining with Diabetes is available on the Cooperative Extension website. Download the class brochures here http://extension.udel.edu/fcs/nutrition/dining-with-diabetes/
