This week, EATWISE (Educated and Aware Teens Who Inspire Smart Eating), a Food Bank For New York City nutrition education program that inspires teens to make healthy food choices, partnered with the Chris Canty Foundation to kick off Food Bank’s Change One Thing campaign with a fun event at the Chris Canty Camp of Champions.
Chris and other NFL players led children through football drills to help them learn about physical fitness and the EATWISE team spoke to them about staying hydrated. Did you know that your body is 60% water? Drinking plenty of water when playing a sport or being active on a daily basis is important because it prevents you from becoming dehydrated.
To help keep the kids hydrated during the event, the EATWISE team handed out water bottles. With the help of Chef Max Hardy, we also provided a very nutritious meal for all the camp participants.
It was exciting to see how many young children are interested in sports, especially football. Everyone had a great time. All the EATWISE ambassadors are super excited to work with EATWISE this summer and help kids #ChangeOneThing to be healthier—like staying hydrated!
