What's for Dinner? Planning for Success in Healthy Eating

Wed, 20 Nov, 2013 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Time Zone: America/New_York
Local Time: Wed, 20 Nov, 2013 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

It's dinner time. The person you support is really hungry. You scrounge through the fridge to find something to make. It's either empty or what is there takes too long to make.  What do you do?  Is fast food or pre-prepared food really an easy and healthy choice? Is it really what the person you support would choose if they weren't so hungry?  Sometimes it feels like a big catch 22 with no good solutions. In this webinar you will learn ways to set everyone up for success in a person-centered way. Healthy eating and informed choices start with the people we support.

Learning Objectives:

 At the end of this webinar participants will be able to..

  • Demonstrate the "Choose Three" method of balancing a meal.
  • Create a planning system for meals.
  • Infuse person-centered practices into the menu planning process.
