My favorite event that happened and that I was a part of, was when Mallory from Eat Smart New York came to the center and talked to the Nutrition & Enterprise group about portion size and then benefits of fruits and veggies. Personally, I like talks when it's informative. As a bonus, she brought snacks and gifts. One of the snacks was a light cream cheese with strawberries and blue berries on a whole wheat English muffin.
Since I want to be a pediatrician I can learn from Mallory about diet. Listening to her makes me want to eat healthier foods and change my diet. She taught me the different benefits of fruits and veggies, such as carrots helping your eyes and onions help with your heart. Lastly, since she came, I've tried to stop eating in front of the TV.
