 The Grenada Food & Nutrition Council spearheaded a Food Court at the National Stadium on Independence Day February 7, 2011. The highlight was Traditional and Local foods.

 

The Grenada Food & Nutrition Council (Council) celebrated “Nutrition Week” from May 30 – June 3, 2011 under the theme: Do a variety of physical activity today and everyday, whatever! Whenever! Wherever!  However! On June 1st, the Grenada Food and Nutrition invited the nation to participate in physical activity in celebration of Caribbean Nutrition Day.

 

The Council’s goal was to demonstrate and to encourage all Grenadians to participate in suitable physical activities to their needs. The Council will then identify within six months at least two groups who would have continued with their activity as a result of June 1st, 2011. 

  1. o provide a physical activity DVD to eight (8) Government assisted geriatric homes by May 27, 2

Prior to that week the Council will plan and organize the recording of a physical activity DVD for the elderly and physically challenged persons at the Hills View Home on Thursday May 17, 2011 in collaboration with the Grenada Physiotherapy and Relief Centre, to be made available to all Government assisted homes on the island which will be used from June 1, 2011.

 

In addition, backyard gardening was also introduced and or maintained at the homes as a form of physical activity with the assistance of the agricultural extension officers throughout the parishes.
