BRIDGEWATER MAYOR HAYES RECOGNIZES SEPTEMBER AS

FRUIT AND VEGGIES - MORE MATTERS MONTH

Kid Street Park Event to Support National Nutrition Campaign

A well balanced diet rich in fruits and vegetables helps ensure the continued health and well being of everyone. Increased consumption of fruits and vegetables and daily physical activity makes a difference in the maintenance of a healthy lifestyle and can reduce the risk of many diseases. It was these simple guidelines that prompted the Produce for Better Health Foundation to designate September as National Fruit and Veggies Awareness Month. The campaign, Fruits and Veggies – More Matters, has been recognized by the Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey and further serves to support the Jersey Fresh Program. Now, Bridgewater Mayor Dan Hayes, through Township Proclamation, takes the program local in support of the Bridgewater Mayors Wellness Campaign.

In recognition of the Fruits and Veggies – More Matters Campaign the Township plans to host an innovative, family-oriented event called “Stone Soup-Bridgewater.” The purpose of the interactive program is to encourage children to become more familiar with the great taste and nutritional value of fresh fruits and vegetables. The event will take place on Saturday, September 23, 2017, from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM at Kid Street Park. The park is located behind the Bridgewater Municipal Complex, 100 Commons Way, Bridgewater. The program will include a presentation of the children’s book  “Stone Soup,” by   Mayor Hayes with the support of the Bridgewater Library. Girl Scout Heart of New Jersey Troop 60802 will assist with the preparation of a fresh vegetable soup plus offer fresh fruit and vegetable samples for all children that attend. Healthy nutrition displays will be offered by Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital – Somerset and Healthier Somerset. The Bridgewater Creative Arts Committee will provide free children’s’ crafts. Live music will be featured by Bridgewater’s own Green Planet Band       

For more information on “Stone Soup – Bridgewater” please contact the Health Department by email at health@bridgewaternj.gov or by telephone at (908) 725-5750.
