Michelle Obama Takes on Congress Over Healthy School Lunches in Op-Ed

Posted: at 11:54 am


The first lady is taking on members of Congress who are trying to scale back federal nutrition guidelines for school meals.

In a New York Times op-ed, published Wednesday evening, Michelle Obama, who has focused on childhood obesity and nutrition as part of her Lets Move! initiative, said some members of the House of Representatives are now threatening to roll back these new standards and lower the quality of food our kids get in school.

The nutrition rules require more fruits, vegetables, and whole grains in school lunches, and sets limits on fat, sodium, and sugar. The rules were set by the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010.

In her op-ed, Obama took aim at an effort by House Republicans to allow schools to waive the standards, saying it undermines the efforts of parents who are working hard to serve their kids balanced meals at home.

A House subcommittee approved a bill last week to allow schools to opt out of the rules if they have a net loss on school food programs for a six-month period, according to the Associated Press. The House Appropriations Committee is expected to take up the bill this week.

Obama also addressed efforts to change the food requirements of the Women, Infants and Children (WIC) programa supplemental nutrition program for low-income women and their young children. Obama said an effort by House Republicans to have white potatoes added to the list of qualified vegetables in the program would override science.

The op-ed was Obamas latest move to defend the healthy food guidelines and respond to critics of the school meal initiatives. On Tuesday, Obama met with school nutrition officials who said the guidelines are working, the AP reports.

The event was an unusual move for the first lady, who has largely stayed away from policy fights since she lobbied for congressional passage of a child nutrition law in 2010.

"The last thing we can afford to do right now is play politics with our kids? health," Mrs. Obama told participants.

In her op-ed, Obama touted Lets Move!, saying the initiative relied on the most current science in developing evidence-based measures to improve school lunch menus, get physical activity into child care centers, and work to get fresh food retailers into underserved areas.

Cranberry debuts fitness centers that encourage health and socializing

Posted: at 11:49 am


Visitors to Cranberrys Graham and North Boundary parks soon will have some healthy options for exercise beyond the typical hiking and ball-playing activities.

Four outdoor fitness centers the first of a kind for the region will open June 4. They are gifts of the Cranberry Township Community Chest, a nonprofit group that raises funds for community improvement. The project costs about $200,000, according to Cranberry Parks and Recreation Director Pete Geis.

The fitness centers are exercise stations:one at North Boundary, three at Graham Park: and one each at the baseball, soccer and football/lacrosse complexes.

Designed to endure a four-season climate, each station includes machines that focus on certain muscle groups. Together, they are aimed at building core body strength, increasing agility and enhancing flexibility. All the equipment relies on the users body weight for resistance.

Mr. Geis, the townships parks and recreation director, said the benefits of thestations extend beyond the prospective health benefit to the user. He said the equipment is clustered to promote socializing. As many as four people can work out at the same time. Some of the equipment is appropriate for those who use wheelchairs.

Plans already are underway by athletic associations that use the fields in the parks to host wellness programs for parents. While the kids are at their practices, the parents can be getting a modified workout, Mr. Geis commented. A lot of these parents are hanging around anyway, waiting for their kids. Now they can get some exercise together while theyre waiting.

And for park visitors who dont already know each other, Mr. Geis said he believes the fitness stations will encourage new friendships. Itll be just like the gym. Youre going to start talking to the people around you so these fitness [stations] will end up nurturing a sense of community a meeting-your-neighbor kind of thing, he said.

Mr. Geis said theres no mystery as to how to make the machines work.Each station has a code that opens to a video that demonstrates the most effective way to use the machines. Fitness programs centering on the equipment are planned and will be run by parks and recreation staff. There also will be one hour free workshops on how to use the equipment at 6:30 p.m. June 9, 10 a.m. June 14, 6:30 p.m. June 18, and 10 a.m. June 28. The instructor will be Jen Cranston, a certified fitness instructor for the township parks and recreation department.

Graham Park is located off of Rochester Road; North Boundary Park is on North Boundary Road.

While the fitness stations were funded by the Community Chest, with help from local businesses and other nonprofits, the township is contributing in installation, landscaping and use of the land.

Baltimore ranks 25th for health and fitness, report says

Posted: at 11:49 am


The American Fitness Index has ranked Baltimore 25th of the 50 largest metropolitan areas in terms of overall fitness. The annual index measures city health based on preventative health behaviors, levels of chronic disease, access to healthcare and community resources and policies that support physical activity.

Washington, D.C., placed highest, while Memphis, Tenn., was ranked last on the AFI, which was established in 2008 by the American College of Sports Medicine and the WellPoint Foundation.

"The AFI data report is a snapshot of the state of health in the community and an evaluation of the infrastructure, community assets and policies that encourage healthy and fit lifestyles," Walter Thompson, chair of the AFI Advisory Board said in a statement. "These measures directly affect quality of life in our countrys urban areas."

Both personal health and community amenities are taken into account by the AFI. Personal health includes health behaviors and chronic health problems whereas community amenities measures built environment and recreational facilities.

While the Baltimore area's overall ranking was right in the middle, its community health ranking was much higher 13th in the nation. This may be attributed in part to Baltimore rating well on measures such as farmers' markets and number of parks.

But Baltimore's personal heath rankings dragged the overall rating down. Ranked at number 33, the health and exercise habits of area residents leave much to be desired: 28.5% are obese and 10.5% have diabetes. The death rate per 100,000 from cardiovascular disease is 208.5, relatively high compared to 164.9 in the DC area.

Since type II diabetes, heart disease and obesity are linked to sedentary lifestyles, simply increasing the amount of active minutes in a person's day can drastically decrease the level of chronic disease in the Baltimore community, according to the ACSM.

In addition to the health consequences, poor personal health takes a toll on the economy. According to a study by Harvard Medical School, the direct annual costs of physical inactivity amounts to approximately $24 billion, or 9.4% of the nations health care expenditures.

The nationwide rankings and the particular findings on Baltimore can be found at americanfitnessindex.org.

Fitness on a Budget: Burn calories, not a hole in your wallet

These budget-friendly fitness alternatives will keep you (and your finances) in shape.

Use the Buddy System

Many facilities offer guest passes to their members or free events for the members friends and family. Some (such as Equinox and Flywheel Sports) even provide a recruitment credit to the referring party.

Don't have a friend with guest-pass potential? Many gyms offer trial memberships and host simultaneous specials (such as New York Sports Clubs' 30 Days for $30 promotion). Keep an eye out for sales. And dont be ashamed to ask the gym if there might be a sale coming up.

Buy In Bulk

To keep you coming back, gyms may lower your monthly rate or drop an initiation fee if you agree to extend a contract, whereas studios like SoulCycle (along with a promotional Soul101 series, offering 3 classes, shoe rental and water for $85), Flywheel Sports and Pedal NYC offer discounted package rates.
