Ponoka residents looking to improve their eating habits are invited to a series of free Alberta Health Services (AHS) information sessions.

Craving Change is a set of three weekly workshops that will be offered in Ponoka beginning next month. The workshops are designed to support participants who would like to feel more in control of their eating habits.

The sessions are led by AHS health professionals who share their expertise and guide interactive group discussions to help participants understand problematic eating triggers and develop a healthier lifestyle, built on improved daily decisions.

Craving Change will be held on June 6, 20 and 27 from 5 to 7:30 p.m. at the Ponoka Hospital and Care Centre.

Participants will learn self-awareness tools and engage in activities designed to help them identify and manage the challenges associated with their nutrition decisions. They will also receive guidance to cope with the emotional factors that impact eating behaviours.

Registration is required as date and time are subject to change.
