Local Resources

Socioeconomic stressors can often contribute to nutritional disorders in children, particularly in minority populations, due to a lack of resources necessary to provide appropriate nutrition and education. There are a range of resources available within the area to assist families with the provision of nutritional foods and making healthy food choices.

Nutrition Education for Limited Budgets

Many of the families, who are on a limited food budget or receive government assistance to purchase food, lack the knowledge of how to buy and prepare a low-cost, healthy diet.
