Mayor Betsy Price is encouraging students to build healthy habits this fall, and parents, teachers and community members should do the same.
Starting Oct. 1, join the FitWorth Mayor’s Challenge to eat five fruits and vegetables a day.
“Fruits and veggies are the foundation of a healthy diet,” Price said. “They also help prevent type 2 diabetes, heart disease and more. But most of us don’t eat enough of the good stuff. So starting Oct. 1, join the challenge.”
The annual event will engage 25,000 Fort Worth ISD students in tracking their daily physical activity, fruit, vegetable and water consumption, and minutes of reading. This year, an adult component is being used by teachers, parents and community members to encourage everyone to build the habit of eating five servings of fruits and vegetables a day during October.
