Healthy Eating Healthy Aging (HEHA)
Natick Service Council is currently offering a Healthy Eating, Healthy Aging program. The goal of the program is to give senior citizens the resources to achieve their health and fitness goals as they age through healthy eating. Participants are given encouragement and advice from a nutritionist through one-on-one visits, nutrition planning and education, individualized exercise program, access to healthy foods through their food pantry visit plus an additional farmers market where participants have access to fresh produce and recipes.
We are proud to offer this program which is available to Natick Service Council clients 60+ years of age through the generous funding of the MetroWest Health Foundation.
Smart Nutrition and Exercise for Kids
Because of the success of our HEHA program, we launched our SNEK program which works with NSC families to promote access to healthy and nutritious foods, exercise and recreational programs through BOKS Kids, MetroWest Boot Camp, and Planet Fitness . We also offer nutritional/physical assessments and counseling for kids. Selection of recipes at beginning of month (each kid picks 2) and ingredients are given to make those meals. Through this program they are able to attend BOX in their school, MetroWest boot camp, planet fitness for exercise programs.
We would like to thank the MutualOne Charitable Foundation and the MetroWest Health Foundation for helping make our new SNEK program possible.
