Start Eating Healthy Day

WHAT:
The American Heart Association's Start Eating Healthy Day celebration can help save the lives of millions of Americans by raising awareness for the importance of good nutrition and making the best eating decisions.

Free materials for individuals, groups and companies that wish to organize Start! Eating Healthy Day activities can be downloaded at http://www.startwalkingnow.org/StartEatingHealthyDay.jsp.

Join us in the hospital's Main Lobby to receive a fresh, crisp apple and delicious granola bar along with some

heart-healthy information.

WHEN:
Wednesday, November 2, 2011- 10 am to 2 pm

WHY:

  • Heart disease and stroke are American's No. 1 and No. 3 killers; eating an overall healthy diet reduces a majority of the controllable risk factors for these diseases.
  • Adopting better dietary habits and choosing a varied combination of foods is your first step.
  • Consuming the right amounts of the proper foods may be the single most important thing you can do to lower your risk.

SPONSORS:
National Start! Eating Healthy Day is nationally sponsored by Subway and locally sponsored by Kennewick General Hospital.
