Weakley County 4-H Healthy Living Ambassadors

Tennessee State 4-H selects five 4-H youth in each county every year to be County Healthy Living Ambassadors. This year the Weakley County 4-H Healthy Living Ambassadors started off with a booth at the Soybean Festival at the Martin Farmers Market. They shared healthy living tips with market goers. Also, one of the ambassadors, Olivia Julian, brought pumpkin bread for a taste test. In one recipe Julian used gluten-free ingredients and asked market goers if they could tell the difference. Healthy Living Ambassador Leah Mendenhall had watermelon juice for sampling to encourage drinking alternatives to soda. Reece Chandler talked with market goers about running and how to train for a 5K. Kyeler Penick talked with the public about the health benefits of ice baths. Penick is a proponent of ice baths, and he takes them on a regular basis. When you ask someone what it means to live healthy, you will likely come up with a myriad of answers. The 4-H Healthy Living Ambassadors have picked the healthy-living topics that they are passionate about themselves and enjoy talking about. They hope that the Martin area market goers learned something from their information they had at the market.
