Course description

Although each food choice we make may seem small, it’s the little decisions we make each day that can derail our health goals and increase our risk for heart disease, stroke, diabetes and even cancer. In this all-new online course, Harvard Health Publishing presents an engaging, empowering and exciting way to learn about healthy eating. While the course is designed as a 6-week plan, you can watch and learn at your own pace.  

All the tips, techniques and healthy food secrets are explained by our experts through fascinating slides, informative charts, interactive exercises and entertaining quizzes. You’ll get worksheets, a food diary, shopping lists and more that you can download and print to motivate you and help you stay on track.
