Strive for Five!

Lighten Up Ramsey 2016 Challenge

3 Veggies and 2 Fruits every day for 4 weeks!


The Kick-Off

Strive for Five goes live at 3 pm on March 6 at Eastwick College. Be there!  

The one-hour program is designed to get you excited about meeting the challenge of eating three vegetables and two fruits every day for the next four weeks,.

Here's what we've ordered:

  • The famous Ramsey Players will do a skit that will make you chuckle, laugh out loud, or maybe groan.
  • Sondra Tackett, ShopRite's outstanding and very friendly dietitian, will give a brief talk on finding happiness with fruits and vegetables
  • Ramsey's Zen Yoga will provide some minutes of easy movement and calm
  • ShopRite's catering services will donate tempting and healthy refreshments
  • Favorite fruit and vegetable recipes will be collected for publication on the Website or Facebook.  Bring yours if you have one.
  • Children can make posters and play games with healthy themes organized by a health educator from Hackensack University Medical Center
  • Lots of prizes
  • Scales will be available--if you want to do a first day weigh-in.  

Bring the family!
