Eating Smart, Being Active (ESBA) is an 8 week course dedicated to helping families learn about obesity prevention and basic nutrition information. The lessons are generally 60 to 90 minutes long. Each lesson includes a food preparation activity, hands-on kinesthetic activities, and a physical activity segment.
