Laurel Health Dietitian Celebrates National Nutrition Month with Local Students

By Kristy Warren

 

To celebrate National Nutrition Month, registered dietitian Gena Rasmussen from the Laurel Health Centers visited local schools to show how healthy eating can be fun and delicious!

 

Thanks to a very generous donation from Painterland Sisters Yogurt, Gena shared 536 cups of tasty, locally produced yogurt while talking with children about how we get nutrition from our food and the important roles protein, vitamin D, and calcium play in building strong muscles, bones, and teeth.

 

Special thanks to Painterland Sisters Yogurt and teachers Joanne Shaw and Brigette Largey for helping us coordinate these outreach events at Charlotte Lappla and Don Gill Elementary schools.
