Fair to promote student nutrition
Spartan Daily (2007)
A new initiative to promote nutrition and health awareness on campus called Healthy San Jose State 2010 will begin tomorrow with the Nutrition Education Action Team’s annual nutrition fair in the Student Union, according to the team. “It’s a really fun venue,” said Kristin Wood, an event coordinator and senior majoring in nutrition. “I find that a lot of kids will be walking through, not even realizing that the fair is going on and they end up joining because it is a lot of fun.” Students can stop by the fair from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and indulge in fresh farmers' market fruit and whole-grain muffins while they learn about healthy food choices, weight control and vegetarianism.
“What we are trying to do is encourage good eating habits and help students make the connection between good nutrition and doing better academically,” Wood said. “Better nutrition is better grades and a better life.”
