To Hold Free Nutrition Assessment

Registration is required. Please call 973-470-5773 to register. This assessment is open to Clifton and Little Falls residents. A Registered Dietician from St. Mary’s General Hospital will be available for one-on-one nutrition consultations to discuss your current dietary habits, nutrition goals, and to answer any questions you may have. Many Americans’ diets are currently lacking in adequate sources of good nutrition. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, fewer than 1 in 10 children and adults eat the recommended daily amount of vegetables and fewer than 1 in 7 adults eat enough fruit. Poor nutrition contributes to many costly diseases, including obesity, heart disease, and some cancers. People who eat a healthy diet live longer and are at lower risk for serious health problems such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and obesity. For people with chronic diseases, healthy eating can help manage these conditions and prevent complications. For more information, or to register for this assessment, call the Clifton Health Department at 973-470-5773. The Clifton Health Department is a contractual health agency serving the Township of Little Falls.
