One of our strategies to enable our advocates to lead healthier lives is to provide awareness and education about the important role good nutrition plays in keeping our hearts healthy.  Healthy nutrition is vital to our health from infancy throughout the rest of our lives.  But breaking bad nutrition habits can be a challenge – and we want to help! 

November 4 is National Healthy Eating Day and we celebrate the entire month of November by hosting FREE Cooking Demonstrations for interested survivors, advocates and volunteers.  National Eating Healthy Day is an annual event celebrated on the first Wednesday in November to raise awareness of the importance of good nutrition and making the best eating decisions to reduce a person’s risk of cardiovascular disease and stroke.

At the American Heart Association, we are passionate about healthy nutrition because obesity is an epidemic in American.  Over 149 million Americans, or 67 percent of adults 20 and older, are overweight or obese.  More Americans eating outside the home than ever before, and when people eat out, particularly at fast-food restaurants, they tend to consume more calories high in fat and sodium.  Away-from-meals also contain fewer fruits and vegetables and whole grains than foods prepared at home. 

Many Americans lack the skills to prepare home-cooked meals – we want to change that!  

Most adults don’t realize they are lacking the proper skills to prepare healthy meals at home. Seven out of ten adults rated their cooking skills above average, but less than four out of ten scored above average on a basic cooking skills quiz. Join us for our Cooking demo – learn new skills, help your family eat healthier meals at home!
