March is National Nutrition Month and Dallas Park and Recreation is joining the Mayor’s Youth Fitness Initiative (MyFi) in teaching Dallas families the importance of eating healthy and being active.
“An unprecedented number of children in our communities are overweight and at risk for significant health problems,” said Crystal Ross, Assistant Director of Dallas Park and Recreation. “Dallas children need our help in their fight against obesity so we are so pleased to offer helpful nutrition information via our MyFi program.”
MyFi staff provide personalized healthy eating programs for every participant and their families all year long, not just in March. These are just some of the nutrition programs that MyFi has offered in the past year:
MyFi is committed to making healthy nutrition a part of the lives of all children fun, creative and enjoyable.
“We are teaching our kids at a very young age the benefits of eating healthy,” said Lilean Stewart, MyFi Program Manager. “Participants also learn that eating healthy is a lifestyle and learning to make good food choices happens one day at a time, not overnight.”
