Healthy Eating Impact Breakfast - Tuesday March 13th
You’re the Cure advocates joined AHA staff and legislators for the Healthy Eating Impact breakfast in St. Paul to celebrate National Nutrition Month. Attendees enjoyed a heart healthy breakfast and learned about the impact sodium and sugar intake has on their health as well as the impact they can make as advocates. After hearing presentations from Dr. Courtney Baechler and Gina Houmann on the cardiovascular impacts of excessive sodium and sugar intake – Rep. Nels Pierson and AHA staff shared ideas on how to implement and advocate for healthier nutrition choices for all. We wrapped up the morning with drop offs to legislators that included a table sized version of the well-loved Sugar Shuffle game. Check out more photos on Facebook
