Whether you like to grow your own vegetables, shop at the farmers’ market, or dash through the drive-through at your favorite restaurant, deciding what to eat is a part of everyday life. The MSU Extension Service works through county offices to teach Mississippians of all ages how to make healthy food choices. Evidence based programs, such as Show Me Nutrition, make learning about food and fitness fun for kids. Extension also produces the popular TV segment, “The Food Factor.” From recipes to tips on preserving your garden’s bounty, Extension has a wide variety of resources available.
