How Does Sugar Affect Your Health and What You Can Do About It
Wed, Mar 1, 6:30-8:30pm, SDC Room, District Office, 25 Churchill Ave, Palo Alto
Join us for an educational night on sugar. Learn how sugar came to be ubiquitous in everything we eat, and became a number one health issue due to its harmful effects on the human body.  As parents, you will also get some great tips on how to combat sugar in your household and diet. Patricia Caldera, Ph.D. will be presenting on behalf of the Institute of Responsible Nutrition, an organization dedicated to changing the way food is produced and marketed and distributed and end food related illnesses and promote good health. We encourage parents to bring their children.
