Eat Wisely

Move Naturally

Vision: To provide the community with the tools to make healthful eating choices.
Eating a well-balanced diet is another area of focus for the W3 coalition. It is tough to create change with this aspect of wellness because of one’s environment, habits, and individual taste. However, the incorporation of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, proteins, vitamins, and minerals into everyone’s diet is essential. W3 works to provide the greater Whitewater area with the tools to make better eating choices through the creation of educational materials, events, and programs.

Vision: To provide the community with the tools to make healthful activity choices.Moving naturally is exactly what W3 says it to be. We encourage the incorporation of movement throughout the day by taking the stairs, walking on lunch breaks, joining recreational sport leagues, and choosing farther parking spaces from your destination. Activity groups such as walking, cycling, swimming, weight lifting, group fitness, basketball, and other recreational activities not only increase one’s level of physical activity, but also enhance social connections and reduce stress. The effects of moving naturally on a day-to-day basis are astronomical!
