Defense Commissary Agency Dietitian Karen Hawkins helps one 5-year-old with his gloves as others are busy making their kid-sized “fruit kabobs.” The healthy food demonstration was part of the Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall Commissary’s health and wellness event, which was in direct support for first lady Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move!” campaign, an initiative that combats childhood obesity. While some of the children from the CDC were making fruit kabobs with Karen and vegetable wraps with post’s Clinic Radar Clinic Dietitian and Nutritionist Beth Trainer, commissary employees were teaming up with the post’s CDC and Morale Welfare and Recreation and showing their support by treating a second group of children from the CDC to a morning of fun-filled exercises.
