Louisiana 4-H And Unitedhealthcare Community Plan Host “Made In The Usa – 4-H Food & Fitness Way” – A Statewide Training To Educate And Promote Active, Healthy Lifestyles

Louisiana 4-H and UnitedHealthcare Community Plan will host more than 125 youth and adult leaders as part of a statewide training camp designed to promote healthy lifestyles through better food choices, fitness and other hands-on learning activities.

“Made in the USA – 4-H Food & Fitness Way” will take place at 4-H Camp Grant Walker and will include group activities, educational sessions and interactive discussions aimed at helping fight the nation’s obesity epidemic through innovative thinking, learning and lifestyle decision-making. 4-H youth from across the state will participate in the weekend events, which focus on the importance of healthy living and enabling and inspiring youth to adopt healthy habits, learn healthy behaviors, and share them with their families and communities.

The event is part of the ongoing partnership between National 4-H Council and UnitedHealthcare called Eat4-Health. Eat4-Health is activating thousands of 4-H youth ambassadors from around the country to make healthy choices for themselves and encourage friends, families and people in their communities to make positive changes through training, creative programs and educational events. It spans 10 states, including Louisiana, which received a $30,000 grant through the LSU AgCenter, which administers the 4-H program in the state.
