Learning how to eat well and to live healthy isn’t easy, especially in our portable and disposable society. We have plenty of quick and easy options at our fingertips, whether it’s fast food, something processed and preserved, or something frozen, but the better options for us…well, it seems that sometimes you need to really go out of your way to eat and live well. The Junior League of Greenwich, ShopRite of Stamford, and Neighbor to Neighbor are working to make it easier to have a healthy lifestyle, though. They’ve created the first annual Fit & Fun Fest that is free and will be on 1/26 from 1-5 pm at the Greenwich YWCA.
According to The Junior League of Greenwich site, the event will have “local chefs and restaurants, fitness experts, health professionals and more! Fit & Fun Fest will provide children and their families a hands-on approach to living a healthy lifestyle and will feature food and health-related booths such as smoothie making, packing a healthy lunch, trail mixology, apron decorating, creative cooking and fitness activities for the entire family!”
Here are some of the local places that will be involved:
