LC Kids Go Power Snacking
This week in the Healthy Habits Fit Club, new Healthy Lifestyles Coordinator Leah Vazquez, and Healthy Lifestyles Assistant, Taysha James brought in examples of healthy and not-so-healthy snacks and quizzed Members on which ones were which. Powdered donuts, greasy french fries, and fried chicken squared off against unsalted popcorn, organic apple slices and baby carrots in an epic battle to be digested by Club Members. In the end, the healthy options won out, and Members were rewarded with the opportunity to create their own signature trail mix that they could take home and share with their families.
Healthy Habits Fit Club is a portion of the “Mind” component of Triple Play, and its goal is to encourage our Members to eat smart and maintain physical activity as a way to improve their overall health and well-being.
Healthy Habits Fit Club will teach Club Members about the benefits of good nutrition and physical activity, equip them with the skills and knowledge they need to adopt healthier habits and encourage them to take small steps toward positive behavior change.
Healthy Habits Fit Club meets every Fridays from 4:30pm-5:00pm If you are interested in signing up your Member for this great way to achieve Healthy Lifestyles, please contact Leah Vazquez or Program Director Annie Webb.
