Doctor promoting healthy eating for kids will hold grocery shopping outing Dec. 11

Thanksgiving’s feast is over and the Christmas season is getting into full swing. And with the holidays – including New Year’s – the time is upon us when eating healthy can be especially tough.

A local pediatrician is ready to help families interested in keeping their children eating healthy year-round, the Healthy Life Virginia newsletter reports.

The Doctor Yum Project is a Fredericksburg nonprofit focused on helping families embrace healthier eating styles. It will hold the next in its series of free grocery shopping classes on Dec. 11 at 7 p.m.

In the class, participants will get tips on how to make the most of their grocery shopping trips, learning strategies that can help them save money while choosing healthful foods. The class is geared toward adults but interested children are welcome to attend.

The  Doctor Yum  Project also will host a series of cooking classes for children starting in February. The four-class series costs $75.
