Want turn a guilty pleasure into a quick, nutritious activity?

The National Council of Negro Women (NCNW)-Greater Boston Section and Tufts Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy have partnered to develop FRESH& – a monthly webinar series that will explore a range of nutrition topics. FRESH& is designed to engage Black women in discussing their diet and nutrition in a culturally competent, celebratory way. Each month attendees will explore topics like how to make healthy, culturally relevant meals, boost their immune systems through diet, and coping with stress through food.

This month, we are excited to present FRESH& Healthy Snacking with Sarah Kerrigan on Wednesday, March 30, 6:00PM-7:00PM EST.

FRESH& is on snack duty this month! Learn how to turn a guilty pleasure into a quick, nutritious activity with FRESH& Healthy Snacking. In honor of Women’s History Month, the snacks we make will be filled with nutrients that are especially beneficial to women. Sarah will prepare a Greek yogurt parfait, granola bars, and baked crunchy chickpeas. Follow along to make your snacks for the week.

She is a member of the Didactic Program in Dietetics at Simmons University. Sarah graduated from Providence College with a BA in Mathematics & Economics in 2020.

She is passionate about helping people create a healthy relationship with food. In her free time, Sarah loves being outdoors. She enjoys running, hiking, or just sitting at the beach.
