Delicious and Nutritious Meals with Hadley

Thinking About Holiday Feasts? With a holiday around every corner, you will soon be planning your feasts with savory food and good nutrition in mind. Hadley's Foods series can help you do so. Now available in large print, in braille, and on cassette, this tuition-free series can help you plan delicious yet nutritious meals in no time.

The series is based on the textbook Guide to Good Food. Four of the series' mini-courses each focus on a particular food group: "Meat, Poultry, and Fish," "Eggs and Dairy Products," "Fruits and Vegetables," as well as "Grains and Sweets." The fifth mini-course, "A Social Perspective," describes how food enhances entertainment. This series features a unique handbook that includes adaptive techniques and tips to help you confidently handle food-related tasks. Enroll in any of the courses that appeal to you and learn to plan healthy and satisfying dishes that you can enjoy on your own and with others.

Hadley instructor Patti Jacobson notes, "If you'd like to learn how to select, store, prepare, and serve foods while preserving their nutrients, flavors, textures, and colors, then this course is for you!" This series is open to students in the Adult Continuing Education and High School Programs. So why not contact Student Services today to enroll? To do so, just call 800-526-9909.
