Community Health Talk

Ask the Registered Dietician – Sample Questions Below – Bring Yours!
Featuring:  Scott Cahn, MS, RD
How do I figure out the correct weight for me? I know I need to drink eight cups of water a day. Does tea count?  How do people with restrictions like vegetarian and lactose intolerant make sure they get enough vitamins and minerals – how do all of us?  We love eating out – can you give some tips for ordering?  Is “reduced sodium” enough or must I look for “very low” on food labels? For questions, please contact the Health Education Department at Kaiser Permanente (650) 299-2433. Co-sponsored by the Friends of the Library
