Montgomery County Holiday Happenings

Nutrition, Health & Food Safety Agent, Barbara Ames, presented on the topic: You Are What You Eat at the 2019 Montgomery County FCE Holiday Happenings. The topic explored our cardiovascular, respiratory, digestive and musculoskeletal systems to find out how nutrients from foods impact our bodies.
