Our Live Light Live Right 6-Week Summer Fitness Challenge children participate in a supermarket tour at Western Beef located on East New York and Ralph Avenue. We wanted to give the children a real life experience and knowledge of how to food shop healthy. The children learned about product placement, how to shop for healthy items on a budget, the importance of reading the nutrition labels while shopping, and how to shop for fruits and vegetables. The LLLR team joined the children and shopped together to select healthier items to prepare lunch for the day. After shopping, they all had lunch at Lincoln Terrace Park. This field trip allowed the children to realized that it is possible to have a healthy meal on a budget.
We want to thank Western Beef for providing us with this amazing experience.
