June Challenge Calendar is Here!

June Challenge Calendar is Here!

Calendar focuses on nutrient-dense foods

Join The Rapides Foundation's Get Healthy Cenla Challenge, a daily challenge designed to encourage people to improve their nutrition and physical activity. Our goal is for everyone to eat five or more servings of fruits and vegetables a day, and get at least 30 minutes of moderate physical activity a day, five days a week. 

The June Challenge Calendar offers daily fitness challenges and nutrition tips. The nutrition focus in this month's calendar is on nutrient-dense foods. Our bodies take in nutrients from the foods we eat making nutrient-dense foods an important part of everyday eating. Some nutrients, in combination with others, are more easily and readily absorbed by the body. The calendar gives suggestions on food combinations to ensure the best nutrient bang for your buck!

In addition to our calendar, we have even more resources to help you meet your health goals. You can click here to see videos about how to eat healthiersimple exercises you can add to your workout, and tips for proper walking techniques on our YouTube channel. Links to all of these resources are also in the "More Links" section below this article. 

The challenges on our calendar are prepared by trained staff in our CMAP Healthy Lifestyle Program. They are designed to be simple and realistic. If you find the challenges too easy, try doubling the amounts. If they are too hard, don't worry. Do what you can, and have fun!

The Get Healthy Cenla Challenge is a component of the Healthy Lifestyle Program, a lifestyle coaching program. The purpose of the Healthy Lifestyle Program is to provide demonstration and education on proper nutrition and physical activity for good health aimed at fighting chronic disease in Central Louisiana. Talk to your doctor for a referral, or call 318-767-3019 for more information. The Healthy Lifestyle Program is funded by The Rapides Foundation and administered by CMAP. Click here to learn more about the Healthy Lifestyle Program.
