Wheels in Motion Biking and Nutrition Program
Call today to register!  

2017 program dates
Wednesdays, starting May 17th for 6 weeks

and Thursdays, starting June 22nd for 6 weeks 

Wheels in Motion builds on several successful nutrition and obesity prevention programs at the Listening Wellness Center in Barre. Past programs have involved collaboration with the Barre Family Health Center, the Cooking Matters Program, the Quabbin Regional High School Composting and Gardening Program and the Barre Food Pantry. Like past programs, Wheels in Motion includes an emphasis on healthy eating, but this new program adds a physical exercise component through bicycling.

The aim for 2017 is to expand to three 6-week sessions starting in May and running through August. Wheels in Motion is geared toward families with an overweight teenager and/or families with children who could benefit from improving their physical or social skills. Participants meet once a week for two hours to learn bicycling skills, safety and maintenance, and to go on rides on local bike trails. Each enrolled child will have the opportunity to choose a used bicycle, through the Worcester Earn-A-Bike program, to keep as their own at the conclusion of the program. While children are biking, parents will gather in the kitchen of the Listening Wellness Center to learn about good nutritional habits, preparing snacks and meals based on sound nutritional guidelines. After the bike ride, families will dine together and discuss what they have learned that day.

This program will function as an impetus for families to begin thinking more confidently about physical activity and eating healthy, and to then put those ideas into motion. For more information contact Listening at 978-355-3501 or Debbie Ennis at 978-257-8062 or debbie@debbieennis.com.
