Information about diabetes, gluten-free foods, planning nutritional menus and what children eat in Park County School District No. 1 are topics for a nutrition panel sponsored by University of Wyoming Extension.
The panel is 11:30 a.m.-12:50 p.m. Thursday, June 6, at the Homesteader Museum in Powell.
“You are welcome to bring your lunch and enjoy it while listening,” said Sandra Frost, extension educator.
Those leading discussions include: Katy Asay, a registered dietician and certified diabetes educator from Powell Valley Healthcare, who will discuss nutrition and diabetes; Jill Smith, owner of Gluten Free Oats, who will discuss nutrition and allergies; Phyllis Lewis, extension nutrition and food safety educator, who will describe how to design nutritious meals; and Deb Eckhardt, food service director at Park County School District No. 1, who will discuss the latest in school food policy and selection.
The event is part of programming that revolves around a Smithsonian Institution traveling exhibit called Key Ingredients: America by Food, which will be on display at the Homesteader Museum Aug. 24 through Oct. 25.
“The exhibit examines food in American life and its relationship with our history and culture,” said Frost.
