From the garden to the table

We are always told to eat our vegetables. In this video, Registered Dietitian Jennifer Fetterley takes a tour of Voluntown farmer Vinnie Cofone’s garden and offers some healthy tips on why we should follow that advice. For three years, Backus nurses and dietitians have been giving out good advice at the Norwich Farmers’ Market as a way to promote healthier lifestyles to visitors. The market also serves as a place for family members to redeem Rx for Health “prescriptions” from their primary care providers for fresh fruits and vegetables, a program paid for by the Backus Health System.
