‘Eat Better, Move More’ coming to Ponca City Library

Ponca City Now - January 16, 2015 8:58 am

The Ponca City Library will participate in a partner program with Oklahoma Healthy Aging Initiative beginning in February.

"Eat Better, Move More," a 12-week program, will be held from 1 to 2 p.m. Mondays from Feb. 2 to April 27 at the Ponca City Library, 515 E Grand Ave.

Why not start the year off trying something different? Want to make a healthy lifestyle change? The "Eat Better, Move More" program could be just what you need.

This program consists of mini-talks on nutrition and walking, which emphasize the benefits of eating more fruits and vegetables, the relationship of dairy foods with bone health, the importance of dietary fiber, and sensible portion sizes. Other topics include stretching, movement, walking in all weather, and healthy weight.

Each of the "Eat Better, Move More" sessions will focus on different topics, so attendees do not have to attend all 12 classes.

Friends of the Ponca City Library will provide light snacks and refreshments.

For more information, call the Ponca City Library at 767-0345, and ask to speak to Adult Services Librarian Marcia Hull, or visit the library’s webpage at www.poncacitylibrary.com or the library’s online catalog at ponca.polarislibrary.com .
