The Eat Healthy, Be Active Community Workshops are based on the Dietary Guidelines for Americans and the Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans. Each of these six 1-hour workshops includes a lesson plan, learning objectives, talking points, hands-on activities, videos, resources, and handouts. 

The workshops are used by community educators, health promoters, dietitians/nutritionists, cooperative extension agents, and others to teach adults in a wide variety of community settings.
