2018-19 Eat Smart Play Hard Magazine
In this issue, you will learn about designing outdoor living spaces, gardening, balancing sports with free play and providing healthful foods for a family. We also have many tasty recipes to try.

Back in 2005, I approached the former Bison athletic director with a wild idea at church one Sunday about involving Bison athletes in nutrition and fitness outreach. Fortunately, he liked the idea, and “Eat Smart. Play Hard. Together” was launched with a popular poster and later, billboards, contests, videos and visits from athletes to local schools.

Through these many years, “Eat Smart. Play Hard. Together” became the slogan for our statewide educational program offered by NDSU Extension offices for children and parents/caregivers. In the process, we have reached tens of thousands of children and families every year with nutrition and fitness education. You may have heard a North Dakota child talking about participating in an “On the Move to Better Health” program or a cooking school, camp or afterschool program. Maybe you have seen a bright yellow drawstring backpack with our sponsors’ names.

This is our sixth issue of a magazine that wouldn’t be possible without a lot of help from many sources. I thank my colleagues at NDSU for sharing their expertise about a wide range of topics. In this issue, you will learn about designing outdoor living spaces, gardening, balancing sports with free play and providing healthful foods for a family. We also have many tasty recipes to try.

We thank our sponsors for providing ongoing support, and we hope you enjoy this issue!
