Nutrition and Wellness

As part of the Family and Consumer Sciences team, Nutrition & Wellness with University of Illinois Extension encourages individuals, families and communities to live healthier with food. Join us for in-person classes and find us online for resources and education about managing diabetes and heart disease, safely preserving foods though canning, freezing and dehydration, being food-safe at home and when working at food service establishments and making healthier options when shopping, cooking and meal planning.

Programs and training opportunities are available for childcare providers, school food service and employers interested in work site wellness programs. Be sure to like our Facebook page for tips for living healthier with food, and see the Program Menu for a list of popular programs and offerings.

For additional information regarding all of your food, nutrition and heatlh questions, please contact Caitlin Huth, Nutrition and Wellness Educator, at or 217.877.6042.
