Potato chips are the no-no snack of the week.
Cindy Ryder presented the program titled “Grains are Great.” She said a body needs seven to 12 servings of grains daily. They are low in fat, high in fiber and contain a variety of nutrients. One gram of grains contains 4 calories and provides a good source of energy.
The next program, titled “It’s Your Life,” will be presented by Millie Toms. Mary Jo Cunningham will conduct the February contest titled “Snowball Fight.”
The group meets Mondays at First Christian Church, 1345 Potomac Ave. in Hagerstown.
