Healthy holiday eating


For many the time between Thanksgiving and Christmas is full of celebrations and get togethers, often around tables of food. Typically, celebratory foods are not the most healthful. What is the balance between enjoying ourselves, and the moment, without overdoing it or creating unhealthy habits? We discuss foods that can be healthy and festive, and consider why it’s not so bad if we do indulge in less healthy options.
Our guests on this program are Dena Irwin, registered dietitian/nutritionist at the Community Health Center of Cape Cod and registered yoga teacher, and Jennifer Rawn, Registered Dietitian with a masters in nutrition and public health.

Mindy Todd is the host and producer of The Point on WCAI which examines critical issues for Cape Cod and the Islands. She brings more than 30 years of experience in radio and television to WCAI.
