REED CITY – While their children watched a holiday movie, parents of preschool through fifth-grade students at G.T. Norman Elementary School learned about “meals on a budget” during a free parent workshop on Dec. 4.
Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan sponsored the event, which was led by Kim Lombard, a registered dietitian from Spectrum Health Reed City Hospital. Lombard gave a short presentation and then guided parents through chopping vegetables for a soup recipe they were given. Each attendee received a packet of healthy, inexpensive meal ideas, and a few won prizes.
