CBC is back with its LIVE RIGHT NOW campaign, urging Canadians to get healthy for a third year running. This time it has teamed up with Loblaws, Dairy Farmers of Canada (DFC), and Food Banks Canada to get us making healthier choices every day. Part of the initiative includes sharing meals as a family. For every meal you pledge to eat with your loved ones, CBC will donate a meal to a family in need.
The goal is 100,000 meals for this year, and you can watch the live meal counter get closer to reaching its goal, one plate at a time at the LIVE RIGHT website.
According to the press release, CBC's Live Right Now challenge enabled Canadians to lose 1.6 million pounds in 2011. The website is full of expert tips and meal plans to get you and your family kick started on a healthier lifestyle.
“Eating together as a family is key to developing healthier food habits in children,” said Assistant Director of Nutrition at DFC, Nathalie Savoie. “Dairy Farmers of Canada is proud to partner with LIVE RIGHT NOW to help Canadian parents become role models by eating more vegetables and drinking milk with meals.”
LIVE RIGHT NOW will also be featured on TV shows such as Steven and Chris, Best Recipes Ever and In the Kitchen with Stefano Faita.
