Nutrition programs guide food choices

By Diane Palmer

To help individuals make healthy food choices, Clemson nutritionist Katherine Cason leads statewide nutrition education programs for limited resource families and children. She created a “Nutrition Mission” CD for fourth through sixth grade students and an interactive “Crib to Kindergarten” program for parents of young children.

She also hosts “Kids in the Kitchen” segments on SC-ETV with her daughter. For her work, Cason was honored with the Joanne Heppes Excellence in Nutrition Education Memorial Award at the national meeting of the American Dietetic Association.
