Thank you, OASIS CATCH Healthy Habits volunteers!

Without you, CATCH wouldn't be possible

To our CATCH Healthy Habits volunteers ... we can’t thank you enough for all you do to make your communities healthier for generations to come. In addition to teaching youth about healthy habits, you are also passing along knowledge and motivation to your peers and perhaps inspiring yourself too.

The Garden Grazers, Fruit Loops & Freggies

Nope, it's not a new musical group

A friendly little eating competition, "Help for Your Health: Fruits and Vegetables Challenge" has sparked a dialogue and prompted everyone to think about their diet. I was surprised that such a simple competition could teach us so much about fruits and vegetables, while encouraging our co-workers too. It was also surprising to learn how much we didn't know.

Happy AND Healthy Holidays!

Now that we’re into the 2013 holiday season, remember the messages you are sending to the youth in your life. Holidays are filled with sweet treats and comfort foods, often with few healthy foods and little exercise.  It’s a great time to celebrate with friends and family, but healthy messages should still be a part of the event. And you have a wonderful opportunity to teach everyone that healthy eating and staying active can be fun!  Here's how.

Do you live the “OASIS lifestyle?”

In case you don’t know, the OASIS mission is this: OASIS is a pioneer of the three-pronged approach to successful aging – lifelong learning, active lifestyles and community involvement.
 
As a volunteer coordinator, I work closely with OASIS volunteers and realized recently that many of them are living, what my colleague refers to as the "OASIS lifestyle.” So what exactly does that mean?

Are you eating your daily rainbow?

Part 1

It can be challenging to eat healthy. Food groups keep changing, fast food is quick and convenient, advertising is confusing and our daily lives are moving faster.  But if there’s one thing we need to do every day, it’s eating five or more fruits and vegetables – and in a rainbow of colors.  Are you eating the recommended five colors a day?
