The Sewickley Valley YMCA is hosting a Healthy Lifestyle Event to promote healthy eating habits for kids. The event will be held on Tuesday, April 16 from 6 - 7:30pm in the Walter J. Brannon Community Activity Center.
With the obesity epidemic rising and children contracting “adult” type diseases at younger and younger ages, children’s health has become a national concern. This seminar will discuss healthy food choices for children and offer them the opportunity to participate in cooking pasta primavera!
The event will feature a presentation from Rosemary Triall, whose biography is below:
Rosemary’s interest in cooking began as a young girl when she heard author Michio Kushi, speak about macrobiotics and how one’s diet could prevent or reverse disease. It wasn’t until her own health began to deteriorate that she made serious changes to her diet. She attended the Kushi Institute in MA and the Vega Study Center in CA. She continued her studies at the Strengthening Health Institute in Philadelphia and healed herself of migraines, eczema and chronic fatigue syndrome. She was certified by SHI in 2001 as a natural food counselor and cooking instructor. She also holds a BS in Early Childhood Education from Boston College and was certified in the Food Is Elementary curriculum in 2003. This program is based on the USDA Food Plate and is in more that 300 0 schools nationwide. Rosemary offers private cooking classes for individuals and groups, consultation, coaching and corporate wellness programs and lectures.
