DiCocco to discuss foods rich in colors, nutrition


BETHEL — Cathi DiCocco, local professional chef and frequent presenter on food topics, will return to Western Mountains Senior College to give a talk for National Nutrition Month.

She will discuss “Spring into Spring with Colorful Foods – A Diet Rich in Colors Will Insure a Wide Variety of Nutrients” from 4:30 to 6 p.m. Thursday, March 6, at the Bethel Congregational Church hall, 32 Church St.

Nutritional programs are always high on the list on evaluations made by participants of past To Your Health programs, and DiCocco is always willing to give an update.

DiCocco said, “My goal is to inspire and encourage people to eat well and take ownership for their food choices.” She will discuss the nutritional color wheel and said, “Adding a splash of colorful seasonal foods to your plate makes more than just a festive meal. A rainbow of foods creates a palette of nutrients, each with a different package of potential benefits for healthful eating.”

The presentation will show how easy it is to enjoy a variety of nutritional foods that supports one’s health. DiCocco will hold a cooking demonstration and will have samples and recipes available.

To Your Health is sponsored by Western Mountains Senior College as a community service with the collaboration of Bethel Family Health Center and SAD 44/Continuing Education.

The public is invited and admission is free. For more information, contact Rosabelle Tifft at 824-2053.
