Eat Great and Participate

Adopting healthy behaviors early in life is important for good health. Recreation, sport and community facilities and events provide a place for community members of all ages to come together to enjoy being physically active. It makes sense to also promote healthy eating in these settings.

Since 2009, Eat Great and Participate has been promoting healthy eating to children, youth and working to increase access to healthy food and beverage choices in recreation, sport and community facilities, and at events across Newfoundland and Labrador. Partnerships have been formed with recreation committees, town councils, arena/facility managers, community groups, parents, volunteers, youth, schools, and sport teams from across the province to explore new and creative ways to promote healthy eating. Let’s work together to make the healthy choice the easy choice!

There are a number of healthy eating and physical activity resources available on the Eat Great and Participate section of the Recreation NL website including a detailed booklet on
Physical Activities and Healthy Snacks for After School Programs.
