New Year, New Friends


nutrition at songhees4January brought a very fun opportunity our way, and one that is really all about making friends.

Beginning last week and going for the next 7 weeks, Jackie Connelly, Registered Holistic Nutritionist at PISE, and Hayley Rosenberg from Nourish Kitchen & Cafe, will be providing nutrition workshops to the Songhees First Nation Youth Program. A drop-in program that happens every Wednesday at the incredible Songhees Wellness Centre in Esquimalt, programmers are constantly working to include new learning opportunities for youth about all aspects of a healthy lifestyle, which is what drove them to invite PISE and Nourish to be involved.

We went in considering all sorts of lesson plan ideas and ways to instruct the kids, but we’re pleasantly surprised it’s really all about making friends. Learning about nutrition is just a healthy bonus.
