Canada: Tecumseh gets fruit on snack menu

Instead of fries, pop and Slushies, the Tecumseh arena concession stand had bananas, apples and bottled water on its front counter Tuesday.
Heather Nadon, a registered dietitian with the Windsor-Essex County Health Unit eyes some fruit at the Tecumseh arena concession stand Dec. 15, 2015. The fruit is part of a new healthy eating program called Take Charge which is being tried in Tecumseh and LaSalle.

The fruit is part of the Windsor-Essex County Health Unit’s new healthy eating program called Take Charge. It will offer healthier eating choices at recreation centres in Tecumseh and LaSalle and was launched Tuesday morning at the Tecumseh arena.

Take Charge makes the healthy choice the easy choice, Heather Nadon, a registered dietitian in the health unit’s chronic disease and injury prevention department, said Tuesday. The barrier to healthy food choices is often the cost and availability and the pilot project is trying to address that.
