Families Walk Through the Pyramid at the Fun and Fit as a Family Festival
March 2, 2010
We’re back and had fun spreading healthy eating and exercise messages to hundreds of kids and families this weekend! Healthy Kids Challenge participated in the 2010 Fun and Fit as a Family Festival, hosted by Food Network South Beach Wine & Food Festival in Miami, Florida. Our Walk Through the Pyramid interactive display showed kids and families that healthy eating can be easy, fun, colorful and tasty; which included low fat Cabot cheese giveaways from our sponsor, Cabot Creamery. Kids also enjoyed physical activity games which brought smiles to their faces and understanding that healthy movement can be fun!

Help your family make simple, healthy changes as well:
- Try using whole grain pasta for dinner this week.
- Serve fresh, canned or frozen fruit for dessert.
- Take a walk with the kids after school or dinner for added physical activity.
