Learning the importance of Nutrition and Physical Activity

Sydney and I took a field trip today to the Poe Health Center at Wake Medical Center. We attended a demonstration regarding making healthy food choices and incorporating physical activity into our day. The program was geared for kids in 1st-3rd grades and it was very informative in discussing how if you only make one bad food choice how much extra physical activity is needed to burn off those extra calories. Before attending the program we played at the campus park and this was the coolest park ever....they had a zip line that went from "ear to ear" and a slide that was sliding thru the valves of the heart. After the nutrition program we watched a movie in the cranium connection which is this huge brain. All in all it was a very unique experience and we learned alot from it too. Here are some pictures from our day...

We had a great day and learned so much about some things we need to do keep healthy and learned alot about our brain....We definitely plan on going back to some other programs that the center offers.
