The Greene County Health Council + Kids Day = More Opportunities!

I was so excited to attend my first meeting of the Greene County Health Council last week!

Not only did I eat a great lunch and hear an informative speaker, but I was able to meet so many others from the area who are in the health care industry, who will be great contacts for me in the future and some who already have ideas of how we can work together! Yay!

Several of these same people were also with me at Hardin Park for Kids Day on Sunday!

There, I passed out Creation Health coloring books and crayons, as well as brochures, books and a 5210 flyer from Let's Go! which says that kids need the following every single day...

5 - or more fruits & vegetables
2 - hours or less recreational screen time*
1- hour or more of physical activity
0 - sugary drinks, more water & low fat milk
*Keep TV/Computer out of the bedroom. No screen time under the age of 2

It was a great day and again, I met many wonderful people who I look forward to working together with in the future - you know who you are, we bonded over my temperamental tent! :)

Let us know if you need a vendor at your next event!
