    Healthy Eating Classes

    Eat4Life

    Eat4Life is a program developed to help Windsor-Essex residents learn more about healthy eating, physical activity, and behaviour change.  This program is unique, research–based, and consists of three courses: Healthy Living, Weight Management, and Mindful Eating.

    To learn more about each course, click on each heading below.

    The Eat4Life Healthy Living course aims to build a foundation of healthy habits to help you make healthy choices for life. This course is recommended as the first course to take in this series, as it provides a basis of healthy living information that will assist with the teachings of the other two courses. 

    In this five week course, you can join a Registered Dietitian to learn how to change old habits, nourish your body and mind, choose foods, plan menus, and get active.

    Building on the principles of the Eat4Life Healthy Living course, the focus of Eat4Life Weight Management is to help participants manage their weight using healthy eating and physical activity.
