If 2012 is the year you resolve to become more physically fit, here’s a reminder: Don't forget your children!
A great event to encourage your kids to become healthier and to educate them in this decision is the Fueling your Family: Food, Fun & Fitness Fair. It will take place on January 21 at Glenbrook Square in the Macy’s Wing. Activities will take place for all ages of kids from 11:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. Better yet—it’s all free!
Scheduled events for Fueling your Family: Food, Fun & Fitness Fair include:
11:15 Madeline’s Toy Box – This is a kids band that will play and encourage kids to dance.
12:15 Kids Zumba led by Shelley Paulausky & Cindy Brandt from Jorgensen YMCA.
1:15 Jumping Jax Jump Rope Team / Kristen Creager, Coach. Jump ropes will be given to kids to take home!
2:15 Powerhouse Fruits and Veggies demonstration given by Kathy Wehrle, RD, from Parkview Hospital. She will provide information about fruits and vegetables and provide samples for kids to taste test. Yum!
