For the last four weeks several of our admin staff, teachers, and community members, have been attending the "Eat Smart, Move More, and Weigh Less" program. A program designed to inform, empower, and motivate participants to be mindful as they make choices about eating and physical activity.
We all are amazed and it really hits home when we see the visuals, such as the picture with a can of soda next to 17 teaspoons of sugar or a double blueberry muffin with 1000 calories next to a regular portioned muffin with 160 calories.
We are learning to read the nutrition labels on products to see visually just how much fat, sugar, and sodium we consume in fast food or ready to eat meals.
