How to enjoy eating more veggies

By Staff | Oct 30, 2016

SAC CITY – Vegetable intake is important for our overall health; however, 26.9 percent of Iowans are not consuming the recommended servings of vegetables daily. In fact, Iowans are eating vegetables less than one time daily.

Vegetable consumption is important for optimal weight management and chronic disease prevention.

Katie Knobbe, an Iowa State University Extension nutrition and wellness specialist, will present the Viva Las Veggies program from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. Nov. 14 at the Sac County Extension office in Sac City.

Participants will learn the potential health benefits of including more vegetables in the diet, discuss barriers to increasing vegetable intake, model vegetable consumption through a salad demonstration and sampling of homemade dressings, and set goals to meet the daily vegetable recommendation.
