Valley Health Plan 2023 General Nutrition Series

Good nutritional habits are the foundation you need for an active, healthy, and happy life. Yet we are surrounded by bad nutritional food options almost every day. Eating foods high in sugar, preservatives, and unhealthy fats can drain your energy and cause significant health issues.   

Our nutrition series is designed to help members learn the skills to make smart food choices that can protect against chronic diseases, strengthen your immune system, avoid weight gain, and improve your mood.

We’ve made it easier than ever to participate in a class by offering them online and during your lunch hour. Check out the classes offered between now and the holiday season and pre-register today.
