Healthy eating is important throughout the year, but the holidays create unique challenges.

The holidays can be notorious for rich foods and overeating. But with a commitment to stick to nutrition goals, New Year’s resolutions can focus on something other than weight loss.

Here are a few sensible tips for maintaining healthy practices through the holiday season.

Plan meals using MyPlate guidelines from USDA. Fill half the plate with colorful vegetables and fruits, one-fourth with protein, and one-fourth with grain. Choose whole grain whenever possible. Add low fat dairy options.

Enrollment is not required for some 4-H programs and events. However, club members are required to officially enroll through the 4-H Online system once a year in order to participate in club activities and fair events. Youth ages 8-18 who are not members of a formal 4-H club may enroll as independent members. Youth between the ages of 5 and 7 may also enroll as Clover Kids.

Holidays are usually filled with family and food. Each family has different traditions that create many memories over the years. One of my favorite holiday traditions is enjoys my sisters’ homemade dinner roles that originate from Grandma’s recipe.  They have become a side dish tradition I absolutely love. Whatever traditions you enjoy, make sure you are serving food safely.

Cooking a Turkey

Whether you are cooking your first turkey or are an experienced cook, it is important to follow these steps to learn how to plan, cook, serve, store, and reheat turkey.

 Medicare eligible Nebraskans still have time to review their Medicare Part D Prescription Drug plans through December 7. Also, anyone eligible for Part D but not yet signed up for a drug plan can do so until December 7.

Every year plans change, just because you like how the plan you are on now works doesn’t mean it will work the same next year. Every year beneficiaries need to check their plan to make sure it is still the best plan for their needs.
