Bonnie Bernstein ROCKs kids health

You’re use to seeing her cover the big sports story but now ESPN’s Bonnie Bernstein has taken on a new assignment- Get Kids FIT! Bonnie was in town for the ING KiDS ROCK race. She talked about this incredible program that is getting children K-6th grade moving towards a healthier lifestyle. Bonnie also offered up some excellent tips all families can consider:

  • Exercise as a family and set goals: Use the time not only to exercise, but to spend quality time with your kids. Hikes, bike rides, power walks. Makes time go by faster
  • Shop and cook together: Empower them to make healthy foods for themselves. Farmer’s markets are fun, can sample things
  • Plant a garden: Gives kids a sense of ownership… they’ll want to eat what they plant
  • Find healthy alternatives: Potato chips = apple or banana chips or Ice cream sundae = low fat yogurt + berries + fat free whipped cream + sugar free chocolate syrup
  • Spice up healthy foods: Smear of almond butter on an apple, celery, banana or put fruit salsa on chicken or fish

The Junkies

Whew! That’s what I said when my in-studio visit with the Sports Junkies was over. I had heard horror but funny stories from previous gal pals who were guests. In the end actually thought the guys: EB, JP, Lurch and Cakes were true gentlemen (attractive too).  I learned that dandruff is still a big problem and I dig accents from Baltimore. All in all it was a ton of fun and I’m thankful for the invite. It was also nice to see Mike Wise stop in to during the show. Special thanks to Executive Producer Bret and WUSA photographer Kevin King. Did you miss it? Now worries… check out their podcast which includes both segments. Tune in to the WUSA9 Morning Show Tuesday to see a recap of the visit.
