Snacks that Feed Your Body & Brain, for Millhill Child & Family Development

  • February 27, 2023
  • 5:00 PM - 6:00 PM
  • Rutgers Cooperative Extension of Mercer County 1440 Parkside Ave., Ewing Township, NJ 08638, USA

What does it mean to snack healthy?  And how does a healthy snack help you? What are some good things to snack on that don’t come in a crinkly wrapper or have hard-to-say ingredients lurking on the label?

We will have a brief review of one of the Building Blocks of Nutrition: Carbohydrates and Sugars – what they are and why our bodies need them.   

Then we will inspire you with some delicious snack ideas and a few to taste.  Some salty, some sweet, and sometimes both at the same time.

This program is for our client Millhill Child & Family Development.  Want to book your own event?  Contact programs@eatingforyourhealth.org.  


Presenter Bio

Dr. Hill-Williams is a respected, board-certified Obstetrician/Gynecologist and physician advisor with clinical and business experience.  She is a nationally recognized expert, presenter, and community advocate on health maintenance, adolescent gynecology, menopause, managed care, and denial management.

Born and raised in Tuskegee, Alabama to parents and neighbors who grew food and paternal grandparents who were sharecroppers in the deep south (a.k.a. indentured farmers).  The Williams family ate fresh produce freshly picked, in season, and her parents canned and froze produce to see them through the winter. They ate freshly caught fish and animals which were raised by neighbors for food. 

It is painful that our subsequent generations don’t know how to put a seed in the ground AND many are not aware of what a real food is. The loss of small farming and agriculture has been detrimental to our society. If we are to halt the ravages of the diabetes crisis facing America, we must confront the loss of the ability to understand how to properly nourish ourselves.
