“A lot of booths were talking about wellness, promoting physical activity, and discussing the types of foods you can eat to be healthier, including information on serving sizes. All of this is aimed at making lifestyle changes and providing encouragement in people’s lives,” said Youth and Family Services nutrition director Darcie Decker.
There was a variety of fun activities and games intended to inspire healthy eating, and a love for gardening, and to provide educational resources about wellness.
