The Moore Public library will host a ‘Food for the Brain’ workshop at 6:30 p.m. on June 10 at the main library, 225 South Howard in Moore.

The workshop will show customers how to boost their brain power using super foods. Nicole Moore, Family and Consumer Science Educator with Cleveland County Extension Service, will be the guest speaker.

Moore said eating a well balanced diet can not only help residents fit in their jeans, but can help reduce the risk of dementia and Alzheimer's Disease.

“You are what you eat,” she said. “Most of us never think about brain health, but the irony is by not thinking about it, we are risking it. Nutrition is important to brain health.”

Moore said medical studies have proven that healthy eating prolongs brain health and can actually strengthen the brain. She will prepare and bringing examples of food that fit the brain health criteria.

Participants in the workshop will have a chance to taste brain-friendly foods, as well as receive recipes and a list of brain-friendly food choices.

Moore routinely conducts seminars on family health and nutrition, food safety, and basic food preparation. This workshop includes food demonstrations, samples to try, and a cookbook to take home and will provide practical information and answers to feeding your brain the healthy way.

This workshop is open for anyone interested in healthy nutrition and learning the basics about foods that assist with healthier brain functions for a lifetime of mental health.

Registration is required.
