Real Food

61% of the food Americans buy is highly processed
More than 3/4 of our calories come from highly processed foods
75% of Americans are not meeting the current dietary guidelines for fruits and vegetables

University of Wyoming Extension can help.

The Real Food program is based on the Social Cognitive Theory. It includes hands-on cooking and interactive discussion through five 2-hour lessons.

Results of our pilot program showed that participants increased consumption of fruit and whole grains, decreased intake of processed foods, and were more likely to read nutrition facts and ingredient lists.
