Nutrition is for Everyone Ambassador Updates - Louisiana

April 10, 2018

Nutrition is for Everyone Louisiana (NIFE LA) project wrapped up its 8-week pilot program with Special Olympics Louisiana (SOLA) this month called the Unified Fitness Club. Each week, athletes and their families participated in a 30-mintue physical activity session and a 30-minute interactive nutrition lesson developed by the NIFE LA team. Nutrition lessons are currently being compiled into a user-friendly instructor's manual that will be disseminated to SOLA organizations across the state. The Louisiana Nutrition Ambassador will continue to work with SOLA to provide train the trainer events and technical assistance as the program is scaled up. Another class is scheduled to begin in Jefferson Parish by June.
