Skaters work up an appetite for healthy choices!

The YMCA Skate Park Comp crew, in conjunction with Western District Health Service, put on two days worth of free skating displays, workshops and competitions this week. A super way for our local kids to remain active throughout the school holidays! 

 

                                                             

 

In addition to scooter, BMX and skate events, participants also enjoyed a healthy , completely GREEN (as classified by the Healthy Eating Advisory Service Healthy Choices Guidelines) lunch thanks to Western District Health Service! The kids thoroughly enjoyed the spread of healthy wraps, rolls and pizza breads prepared by the WDHS cafeteria under the green guidelines. The cohort washed it all down with cups of Australia's best tasting tap water, without a single request for soft drink. The crew were then refuelled and ready to continue riding the ramps! 

 

   

 

Kudos to the YMCA crew and WDHS for putting together a school holiday event that promotes both active living and healthy eating. Hope to see this back again in future!
