"Eat Well, Play Well"
With the fight against childhood obesity an ever-growing topic, some local businesses get together to hold the "Eat Well, Play Well Event" today at the Imaginarium of South Texas.
The new LMC Internal Medicine Doctor, Carlos Canova, was at the Imaginarium of South Texas for the, “Eat Well, Play Well Event.” He's hoping to talk to parents and children about the importance of staying healthy.
Along with being able to speak to doctors, there were different booths available to check everything from children's eyesight to diabetes. The main issue being talked about at the “Eat Well, Play Well,” event was nutrition and healthy lifestyle choices.
She adds that you need to start when they're younger. That's why they had a chef on hand making healthy snacks.
Directors say the response to the exhibit has been great with parents and their children getting engaged in the activities and learning together. Lauren Kendrick, Pro 8 News.
