Nutrition Expo: Put Your Best Fork Forward

Ohio Room, HUB

March is National Nutrition Month, so to celebrate, the IUP Dietetic Interns are putting on an expo in the HUB using this year’s theme, “Put your best fork forward.”  You will be taken on a food journey through the USDA’s MyPlate, showing how this free tool can be utilized in everyday eating and cooking.  Cooking demonstrations will begin at 12:05 p.m. There will also be food samples for attendees to try, while supplies last. Attendance vouchers will be available. Attendees who interact with all of the MyPlate stations can be entered to win a Chili Tasting for Two at the Student Association of Nutrition and Dietetics’ (S.A.N.D) Chili Cook-off which begins at 3:00 p.m.
