In anticipation of FAME’s upcoming programs at Mar Vista Gardens, we partnered with The Boys & Girls Clubs to bring Let’s Move! and Champions for Change on-site for a Family Health Festival. On Saturday, October 5th, nearly one hundred children and their parents/caregivers turned out for this afternoon event promoting healthy eating and physical activity. Physical activities included hula-hooping contests with prizes awarded to the child who could hoop the longest, and an inflatable castle that young kids could bounce around in. We also featured a game where children could spin the ‘nutrition wheel’ and win a prize if the pointer landed on their selected favorite vegetable. Later in the day, two types of healthy snacks were served to the attendees: lightly seasoned, grilled vegetable skewers; and cold fruit skewers with an optional sweet yogurt sauce.
