Food Revolution Day!

No Comments Fit Kids, Healthy Events, National, Tampa

I have been inspired by Jamie Oliver since his show, Food Revolution, aired on TV.  Watching his passion for healthy kids, change and awareness about what goes in to our food struck a chord with me because of the work I had already started with Fit Kids Playground.  I had already begun watching more documentaries about food, our food process, the obeseity epedemic here in Amreica amon children, the food regulations that our school system has in place.  But I could tell that this fight was also far from over.

I decided to get more involved.  Fit Kids Playground promotes and supports Jamie Oliver’s mission by being a part of the Food Revolution here in Tampa!  You can join the conversation with us in Tampa through:

We have the same mission:  #realfood

We are excited to also be a part of the May 19th GLOBAL FOOD REVOLUTION DAY event!  We will be out at the Tampa Bay Markets Wiregrass Fresh Market on May 19th.  We will have healthy snacks,  a Fit Kids Playground area and would love to chat with local revolutionaries in our community about how what they are doing to support real food and real change among our community!

Our event can be seen on the Food Revolution Day calendar and we hope to see and meet many of you then!

So what is your take on REAL FOOD?  Is your business or organization standing up for real food?  We would love for more of you to get involved with us locally here in Tampa.  It might take an army to move mountains in this fight, but it has to start somewhere.  One person CAN make a difference!  We hope you will join us!

Event Time & Location:

Saturday, May 19th

Push Away The Screen Giveaway

9 Comments Giveaways, Push Away The Screen, Tampa

As a We Can! Community Partner, one of the Fit Kids Playground missions is promote reducing screen time among families. This seems like a simple concept, but as parents, we struggle with knowing how much is too much, when to say when and with technology becoming more rapidly integrated into homework, the lines can easily become blurred.
