ORONO — University of Maine Cooperative Extension is set to hold a nine-session virtual nutrition class for young adults aged 19-25 and adults with young children.

The course, “Eating Smart, Being Active,” runs from Wednesday, Jan. 3, through the end of February.

The course aims to provide participants with the knowledge and skills to make healthy food choices. Each session will cover a different topic related to nutrition, such as food budgeting, meal planning, food safety and cooking tips, and will include interactive activities, discussions and resources.

Participants will also receive free cooking tools and a cookbook after completing all nine sessions, according to a news release from Vanessa Young with the extension.

Participants can choose between two time slots. Classes will meet Wednesdays, either from 9-10 a.m. or noon-1 p.m., on Jan. 10, 17, 24 and 31, and Feb. 7, 14, 21 and 28.

Class size is limited; registration is required. For more information, to register or to request a reasonable accommodation, contact Young at 207-255-3345 or vanessa.young@maine.edu.
