Now – January 4, 2015

A place for every body! Study circulation and digestion, learn about go/slow/whoa foods, play food detective, get an up-close look at a giant nose, row a boat in tandem with a skeleton and create a warm-up and cool-down routine. Children and adults will have hands-on opportunities to explore nutrition and fitness in ways that help them understand their bodies, understand the importance of making healthy choices and apply concepts in everyday situations. Eat smart, move more, live well!
