Live Healthy Miami Gardens
The city of Miami Garden host an annual health and fitness challenge where the community can take a baseline assessment of their weight, blood screenings and fitness ability. They are challenged over a few months to participate in a variety of activities from yoga, aqua aerobics, Zumba and boot camps. EatWell Exchange was invited to discuss nutrition and its impact on overall health. We taught them about portion size and how to easily evaluate if they are getting enough or too much of different food groups. We provided an interactive presentation on using their hands to evaluate potions. We also discussed healthy snacks and how to pair foods together to help fight off cravings while still being nutritious.
