Food, Nutrition & Health

Choosing and preparing a healthy balanced diet for the whole family isn't easy. But it's important! UF/IFAS Extension, Hillsborough County can help. We provide classes and materials to help consumers choose and prepare diets that manage or prevent diabetes, hypertension, cholesterol, and weight problems. We also offer information that can help make sense of food labels and allow families enjoy healthy eating on a busy schedule.

Our goal is to help consumers stay in good condition and provide a healthy lifestyle for themselves and their families.
