Join in for the 25th Annual Nutrition Fun Walk and Run Sunday, April 12.
The free five-kilometre event starts at the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex at 11 a.m. and travels gently through the residential neighbourhoods of the city.
The Nutrition Run is a great opportunity to load up your stroller or bicycles and bring your children and pets along. Families and friends will enjoy the fresh air and prizes.
March is Nutrition Month and this year’s theme is “Eating 9-5” and focuses on helping families learn how to eat well all day long.
Here are some simple tips that will help inspire you to “make it and take it” with you wherever your day takes you and enjoy great food to go.
• Made the way you like it: Bring your favourite foods and snacks from home and eat what you love.
• Pack the right gear: Being prepared with re-usable bowls, containers and cutlery is the way to go. Stay hydrated by packing a water bottle and keep it full or freeze water or juice to keep foods chilled.
• Be creative with leftovers: Tasty leftovers can be enjoyed the next day. Just pack to go the night before. • Home grown food: Grow some of your own food in a backyard, containers or a community garden.
Pump up your sandwich, smoothie or lunch bowl with fresh-greens and veggies.
