Library, Kiwanis provide program on healthy eating

The DeKalb Public Library will present its next installment of the “Healthy Mind, in a Healthy Body” initiative at 2 p.m. Saturday with “Snack on THIS! Healthy Foods with Hy-Vee,” a program for children and caregivers.

Hy-Vee dietician Lisa Brandt will discuss healthy living and nutritious alternatives to unhealthy snack foods. Using youth books such as "Kid’s First Cookbook," by the American Cancer Society, and "Kids Cook 1-2-3," by Rozanne Gold, Brandt will demonstrate how youngsters can use healthy ingredients to make quick snacks.

Along with a demonstration, Brandt will provide sample tastings of the snacks she creates. Books on healthy cooking and sustainable living will be available for borrowing.

This program is free and open to all; no registration is required. The library is located at 309 Oak St.

The program is part of the “A Healthy Mind, in a Healthy Body” initiative between the DeKalb Public Library and the DeKalb Kiwanis Club. This five-year strategy will bring a variety of programming for all ages to the library focusing on physical, mental and economic health, as well as sustainable living.
