Eat, Move & Live in Balance

Eat, Move & Live in Balance is an extension of Wellness for Everybody initiative. The goal of the program is to address the need for nutritional education and fitness engagement to help decrease the health disparities in the African American community. Specifically, among low income and single-family homes where families could most benefit from developing sustainable healthy eating habits through coaching, creating menus, supermarket tours and healthy cooking demos. In addition, consumers would be introduced to various fitness activities that are low or no cost. Physical fitness activities consumers can sustain after the program ends. BeautiFitStrong Camp for Girls along with BeautiFitStrong Fitness Studio and program staff are committed to this program. The goal of the program is to educate, engage and connect families to healthy nutrition and fitness activities that can be sustained. When healthy eating is more affordable and the food tastes good, the targeted population will be more likely to see it as a possible lifestyle change. In the same token, when exercise seems doable, is made to be fun, family oriented and affordable; consumers are more likely to engage in exercise as a lifestyle habit. Eat, Move & Live in Balance will utilize COFFEE, BeautiFitStrong, LLC, NNLM resources and our library partners to complete a series of health & fitness programs.
