Healthy U Crews visit Alberta communities

July 12, 2013

Can you turn orange? Highly possible.

This summer, Alberta’s Healthy U Crew will travel to more than 30 communities across the province to share ideas with Albertans on how to be more healthy and active – and to solve vexing mysteries, like whether you really can turn orange.

The crews are visiting major events, schools, grocery stores and recreation centres until September.

The Alberta government’s Healthy U 5&1 Experiment is for kids between the ages of 6-12, and these community visits are a fun and easy way for kids and families to learn about healthy eating and active living. Through 42 epic experiments, the Healthy U 5&1 Experiment offers children and families creative, off-the-wall ways to learn about healthy foods and become more active.

“Thumbs up from me, definitely worth giving a try.” said Sheryl Stone of the popular parenting blog Mommy Connections (Leduc) about the 5&1 Experiment. “We all know kids love enthusiasm and a new thing to look forward to everyday. Let this be it!”

This is the fifth year the Healthy U Crew has toured Alberta since 2003. Last year, the crews visited over 28 communities across Alberta, talking to almost 17,000 Albertans and sharing healthy living tips, information and prizes.
