Free Interactive Workshop

    Healthy Families, Happy Kids, a free interactive workshop series for parents and children at the East Hampton Day Care Learning Center, aims to promote healthy eating habits for the whole family.
    The series, taught by Jennifer Taylor, executive director of the Wellness Foundation, starts next Thursday at 6:30 p.m. with a session on smart shopping. It will cover how to make healthy and budget-friendly choices at the grocery store and will also include food preparation demonstrations and tastings.
    The series continues on May 12 with Power Foods: Making Every Bite Count, in which participants will learn how to pack nutrient-rich ingredients into favorite meals. The May 19 workshop will address how to do that while also involving children in meal preparation.
    Advance registration is required with Karen O’Connell at the day care center. People can register for one or more workshops.
