Yep, I met Jared from Subway!

Tab Ramos, former Olympic soccer player; Laila Ali, boxing champion and Dancing with the Stars finalist; and Jared, Subway spokersperson who lost weight eating Subway sandwiches.

Have you heard about PEP? I was at a National PEP Rally this week.

PEP stands for Play More, Eat Right, and Push Away the Screen.

At the rally Subway and the National Institutes of Health announced a partnership in support of We Can!

We Can! stands for Ways to Enhance Children’s Activity & Nutrition

As a mommy blogger I was invited to the NIH/Subway We Can! event. I met the Subway spokespersons, Laila Ali, boxer and Dancing with the Stars finalist; Jared Fogle, Subway spokersperson; and Tab Ramos, Olympic soccer player, as well as NIH and Subway officials. While the children participated in drills and exercises at Stadium Armory, the moms discussed how to get the word out about We Can!

I’m committing to promoting the program on my blog and on twitter. In our house we can step up our eating habits to include more fruits and vegetables and less bread. I want to commit to exercise three times a week instead of two. As a family we need to cut back on our screen time. What are you planning to do help your family get healthy? Leave a comment.
