As obesity rates increase and over-eating continues to be a large social issue in our country, Get Healthy, Greenfield! is hoping to engage Greenfield residents and provide resources on the importance of healthy eating
Appropriate, adequate, and safe food and nutrition requires a regular and sufficient consumption of nutritious foods throughout an individual's lifespan. This begins at infancy, as breast-feeding provides many beneficial nutrients that are vital for normal growth and development of children.
Nutrition also requires a balanced diet, complete with appropriate servings of vegetables, fruits, dairy, grains, and protein.
Making healthy food can be a fun, family-oriented experience. Farmer's markets are a great way to get affordable and fresh food right from your own neighborhood.
Regular exercise has been shown to reduce the risk of certain diseases such as high blood pressure, stroke, coronary artery disease, type 2 diabetes, obesity, colon cancer, and osteoporosis.
Do you want to work out but have no idea where to begin, what workout to do, or how to get motivated? There are routes of varying distances and locations available throughout Greenfield for walkers and bicyclists.
