Corner Brook, NL—On March 19, 2015, all Colemans locations partnered with the CPMA (Canadian Produce Marketing Association) to celebrate a recent new promotion named “Half Your Plate”—to learn how important it is to fill half your plate with healthy fruits and vegetables.
Half Your Plate is a new healthy living initiative that empowers Canadians of all ages to eat more fruits and veggies to improve their health. The program was developed in cooperation with the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada, Canadian Cancer Society and the Canadian Public Health Association.
Half Your Plate is a simple concept which focuses on practical ways to add a variety of fruits and veggies to every meal and snack. The program is fun, practical and informative while providing tips on how to prepare fruits and veggies for meals and snacks at home, at school, at work, eating out or on the go.
School kids from across the province of Newfoundland were invited to Colemans stores on March 19, 2015, with Colemans’ registered dietitians on hand in select locations.
