Public Health Nutrition – Making the healthy choice, the easy choice!

Your nutrition services staff seek to provide and support programs and community strategies that make healthy food choices, the easy choice. We educate and collaborate with a wide variety of businesses, organizations, and community groups to improve nutrition in our community. We seek to build a healthier food environment, promote  wellness, and reduce chronic disease risk for all Cerro Gordo County residents.

  • Maintaining good health
  • Improving management of diabetes, heart disease, and other chronic health conditions
  • Boosting energy to do the things you love

Here are just a few examples of health conditions that can be prevented or improved by our food choices:
