There are a lot of products on the shelves labeled “whole-grain,” “made with whole grain,” “enriched,” and “fortified.” It is not easy for consumers to make healthy choices when they are not always sure what terms are or what they mean. Join Walworth County UW-Extension Family Living Educator Jenny Wehmeier for a back to basics workshop where you will learn to critically examine labels and packaging of whole grains. You’ll also enjoy samples and take home some recipes for dishes with quinoa, bulgur, chia seeds, couscous, and so much more! Registration due by January 27. Classes fill early, so register today!
