(Historical Entry)

Eat Well For Less is a series of self-paced, web-based learning modules offering ideas about how to meet some of the challenges of running a household. The goal is to share information about how to plan healthful meals, prepare tasty, low-cost foods that are quick and easy, and make food dollars last through the month.

The three modules are:

  • "Pyramid Power" covers the basics of MyPyramid
  • "We Wish You Well" focuses on food safety
  • "Stretching Your Food Dollars" covers food resource management
