Eat Great and Participate
Adopting healthy behaviors early in life is important for good health. Recreation, sport and community facilities and events provide a place for community members of all ages to come together to enjoy being physically active. It makes sense to also promote healthy eating in these settings.
Since 2009, Eat Great and Participate has been promoting healthy eating to children and youth, and working to increase access to healthy food and beverage choices in recreation, sport and community settings across Newfoundland and Labrador. Partnerships have been formed with recreation committees, town councils, arena/facility managers, community groups, parents, volunteers, youth, schools, and sport teams from across the province to explore new and creative ways to promote healthy eating. Let’s continue to work together to make the healthy choice the easy choice!
