Dining With Diabetes

Purdue Extension’s Dining with Diabetes program equips individuals with skills to prevent diabetes and help those with diabetes lessen their risk of long-term complications. Dining with Diabetes participants learn to prepare the foods they enjoy with simple modifications and discuss ways to increase physical activity in order to promote optimal health. These lifestyle changes may help to reduce the risk of complications from diabetes by lowering blood glucose, maintaining body weight, and lowering blood pressure. The program consists of four 2-hour sessions and a follow-up session presented by Extension Educators with assistance from other healthcare professionals. Educators demonstrate how to prepare healthier options for a variety of meals and snacks, which participants are able to sample during the sessions.
