Greenville Regional Hospital Dietitian Deb Drury and Bond County Health Department Health Educator Pat Paine recently teamed up to present a program for all Bond County 6th graders on healthy snack options and portion control of high sugar and fat treats.

The session has been conducted in Mulberry Grove, Pocahontas, Sorento, and Greenville sixth grades and was well received by students and teachers. The goal of the program is to educate youth about nutrition and prevent obesity.

Students received literature and a fast food nutrition guide to aid in making healthy choices.
