November is National Eat Smart Month and the AHA has free tools to help you take simple steps to eat healthier. It’s fun and easy! We provide materials and information for workplaces, schools, individuals and communities. Go to www.heart.org/EatSmartMonth to register for the AHA's free toolkit.
And to further celebrate Eat Smart Month, we're sharing this video highlighting activities from the Fall semester of the AHA's Maui Kids Cook With Heart program. The program, funded through a generous grant by the Saunders Family, provides students in Lahaina-area schools with training to help them select and prepare healthy, tasty snacks and meals that they can eat themselves and share with their families. The student training is performed by professional chefs from the West Maui area who volunteer their time to improve health and nutrition in their community. We hope that watching the students enjoy cooking and eating "smart" will inspire you to try it too!
