It was a very rewarding experience to be awarded the “Healthy Snacking” mini-grant and to present this toolkit. The student athletes were very receptive to incorporating healthy snacking into their busy lives. The power point and activity handouts provided the necessary tools to make it possible for the students to learn about healthy alternatives while on campus and on the road.
The videos and articles on recipes, and nutrition via the Kids Eat Right Monday message has been another way to inform my F acebook friends and twitter contacts of a healthier lifestyle. It is so convenient to have nutrition information at my fingertips and be able to forward this info to inform others of ways to avoid obesity, and develop proper eating habits.
Thank you Kids Eat Right and the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics in providing a unique volunteer opportunity.
