On Tuesday, the Rutgers Healthy Ambassadors 4-H Program launched the first of six Healthy Snacks workshops for children at the Y (grades 2-8). The students engaged our children in learning nutritional facts while making healthy snacks to eat. This week the children learned about the 5 foods groups, participated in active games and made their own delicious trail mix. The children had a great time participating in this workshop and they are looking forward to the weeks to come. Many thanks to the Rutgers Ambassadors!

The recent Healthy U Family Night at Quitman School was a terrific success! As the teachers started the night with awesome stations, families enjoyed great music, healthy snacks, but most importantly, active games and activities. Parents, older siblings, and even grandparents were truly engaged in a hula hoop contest, jump rope competition, and of course, the YMCA dance!
