Moving and Learning About Nutrition

On Saturday, April 24 the Milford youth center held a Nutrition Decathlon.  This was a free event where kids played games, ran obstacle courses and enjoyed themselves.  Each game focused on a fruit or vegetable category and taught the kids about the importance of living a healthy and active lifestyle.  Participants also sampled many different fruits and vegetables.  This event was made possible by a United Health Care and Youth Service America grant.  Special thank you to Whole foods of Bellingham, United Way of Tri-County, Metro West Community Health Care Foundation and the JAG of Milford.
