Community Ministries of Rockville
One is never too old to learn new things and yesterday’s workshop on Heart Healthy Nutrition for seniors was proof of that. Organized by the Elderly Ministries Program of Community Ministries of Rockville, the workshop featured a presentation by Lindsey Seegers, the Nutrition Educator from Manna Food Center. Both CMR and Manna are Catalogue non-profits. Elderly guests were given some simple tips on how to improve their diets by reading labels and avoiding foods rich in sodium, sugar and saturated fats, eating fresh and frozen rather than canned foods….and how to be aware of misleading food labels. Interpreters were on hand to help Chinese speaking guests and Manna brought headsets that interpreted for Spanish attendees. No matter what language you speak, no matter how old you are, the message was plain…eat healthy for your heart.
