Dining with Diabetes Coming This fall in english and spanish


Following a careful meal plan is the first step in controlling blood sugar. This is also the hardest step in diabetes control. This program helps those individuals with diabetes or pre-diabetes learn strategies to manage their diabetes through menu planning, carbohydrate counting, portion control and label reading. Taste testing healthy recipes demonstrates that you don’t have to give up good tasting food if diabetic.  Dining with Diabetes is a program designed for people with diabetes and their family members.

Two new 5 class series’ will be offered this fall in Dover and Wilmington, designed for people with diabetes and their family members.  These classes will include diabetes education, cooking demonstrations, and tasting of healthy foods.  After each lesson, participants will take home recipes and knowledge about how to manage diabetes in their lives.

Because of generous funding from the Greater Milford Lions Club and the Latin American Community Center, residents of Milford and those attending the Spanish class in Wilmington can attend the classes free of charge. The upcoming class schedule is:

  • Wilmington (Spanish) at Los Jardines Apartments, 1000 W. 5th Street, Wilmington, Delaware 19805 on October 10, 24, 31 and November 7, 2019 from 1:00 to 3:00 pm with a reunion on February 6, 2020 at 1:00 pm
