Second place Mount Team comp, back in 2011…..looking forward to seeing how our teams go this year. Four teams, 2 gyms, 1 community!

Bit of controversy floating around Godzone at the moment over a suggestion by a dietician that kids could benefit from avoiding the ol white bread sammie in the lunchbox..  That dietician was Caryn Zinn, and she is doing some good things over at AUT in the lower carb, higher fat world of nutrition.

Campbell Live asked a few other dieticians for their own take on a healthy lunchbox.  Some interesting ideas.  Most not so healthy, with the usual justifications such as ‘kids need a treat’ , ‘we don’t want to deprive them’ etc.

Obviously, I have no idea what it is like to raise a child, and I also don’t think that 100% avoidance of junk food is a sensible way to teach your kid about good nutrition, but surely the  lunchbox is a great opportunity to ensure high quality real food on a daily basis….  What do you think?  How young do we start teaching our kids about healthy food?

You can watch the clip HERE.

Now, we normally don’t bother practicing workouts before a comp.  It kind of takes the fun out of it…. :)  BUT, workouts 2,3,4 of The Mount Team Nationals could benefit from a practice, at the least to avoid any Sunday soreness.  So take your pick from the 3 options under the Performance tab.
