Nutrition – Learning Healthy Habits

At Bronson Wellness Center, we’re more than just a gym. Here, we combine exercise with nutrition and cooking education. Everything we do is about providing you the resources to live your healthiest life possible.

Our nutrition educators are specially trained and highly educated in the way food works with your body to help keep you healthy, energized and strong. They offer a variety of low- and no-cost classes so you can learn how to properly fuel your body.

Nutrition and healthy living classes

Nutrition and healthy living programs are led by our nutrition experts. In these classroom-style programs, you will learn tips and tricks for eating and feeling better.

Eat Healthy, Be Active

  • Do you want to learn how to stretch your food dollar and plan healthy meals for you and your family?
  • Would you like to learn how to prepare and sample creative and nutritious new dishes?
  • Do you want to learn and practice how to be active in ways that YOU enjoy?

Eat Healthy, Be Active is a six-session program that will help you get healthier. We offer a daytime or an evening session every month. The program is FREE–and in three of the six class sessions, participants get to take home free groceries to prepare what they sampled in class. This class is for adults over age 18. We provide free child care. Class participants who are on Medicaid or who have a Michigan Bridge Card (SNAP) are given priority admission to the class. Call Caroline Walker at (269) 639-2949 for more information and specific dates and times.

Healthy cooking demonstrations

Healthy cooking demos are held monthly in our on-site test kitchen. During class, you’ll watch our team of nutrition educators prepare a healthy meal. Following class, you will have the opportunity to taste the food. Healthy cooking classes equip you with the knowledge and ability to create tasty, nutritious meals in your own home.
