Recreational Sports

Nutrition Week

March 19-24, 2018

March is National Nutrition Month and this year’s theme is Go Further With Food. Rec Sports dedicates March 19-24 to promoting nutrition and focusing on healthy eating and living. The emphasis this year is taking that extra step to becoming healthier, whether that means starting the day off with a healthy breakfast, properly fueling up before a workout, or meal prepping for the week. The foods chosen will make a big difference throughout the day and week.

Check us out on Facebook and Instagram all week for reminders about activities happening through Rec Sports.
