Nutrition & Wellness

Personal and Family Nutrition
Nutrition and health information are critical to the well-being of each individual and family.  The quest for current and creditable information is both urgent for today’s health challenges, and continuous as each person and family builds a body of knowledge to help guide them through the months and years of life. Colorado State University strives to be one of your “go to” sources.  On the local level, Extension agents provide a link to the nutrition specialist and registered dietitians on campus. We can help locate and provide current nutrition information and updates for individual situations, as well as provide short presentations for local groups or organizations. Contact the local Extension agents by phone or email. 
State and national Extension resources are available for 24/7 access, providing a wealth of credible resources.  Here are some of the recommended sites:
CSU Live Eat Play
CSU Kendall Anderson Nutrition Center
CSU Nutrition and Health
eXtension – Family, Food & Fitness
