The staff at the Penal Rock Road Health Centre hosted a Easter Fruit Extravaganza on April 18th, 2019. The event comprised a lecture and demonstration on healthy eating from Dr. Sandi Arthur, Primary Care Physician II and Ms. Cynelle Vincent from Nutrition and Dietetics Department, as well as a Easter Hat parade. All participants were asked to incorporate fruits and vegetables into their traditional Easter Bonnet hat to raise awareness of healthy eating. Thirteen children between the ages of 6 months and 10 years paraded their healthy hats. The event aimed to encourage persons from  the Penal Rock Road Community to make healthy eating and lifestyle choices, as well as exercise to fight against childhood obesity. To show that exercising can be exciting, the event ended with Health Centre staff joining the children in an exercise dance session.
