Most doctors agree that prevention and healthy living are the best approaches to dealing with any major health issue. The Cancer Project, a nonprofit collaborative effort of health professionals who have banded together to educate the public on the benefits of a healthy diet as a way to prevent cancer, has begun its four-part summertime Food for Life Nutrition and Cooking for Kids series. Each free educational session is geared toward children ages 9-11 and covers a nutrition topic and activity concluded with a cooking demonstration and food sampling. With the first two classes completed in late June, the Cancer Project continues “Rainbow Lunches” on July 1 and “Digging these Dinners” on July 8 from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Chelsea District Library at 221 S. Main St, Chelsea. To register, contact Karen Persello atthe Chelsea District Library at 734-475-8732  or, for more information, visit www.cancerproject.org/kids/classes/chelsea_mi.php
