Tip: Food for thought in eating classes

Good nutrition can easily be sabotaged by poor eating habits. Cornell Cooperative Extension of Suffolk County is presenting two classes aimed at helping you to become a better food consumer.

Many of the bad things you put in your body begin with bad things you put in your shopping cart. "Basics of Healthy Eating" on Wednesday from 6 to 7 p.m. will offer tips on how to shop for food wisely. The class also will touch on healthy snacks. And because even discerning shoppers can be confused by a product's ingredients, "How to Read Food Labels," offered 6-7 p.m. Aug. 31, will help you decipher what's inside a box, can or package.

Each class is $10 and will be held at the cooperative's office in Riverhead. For more information or to register, go to health-calendar or call 631-727- 7850, ext. 340.
