Do your children swim?
Swimming is very important in our family. My grandfather’s college roommate drowned. My grandfather instilled in his children the importance of knowing how to swim. My mother did the same for my brother and me and now our girls are learning the importance of swimming as well. My girls have been swimming since they were 4 months old and are very excited that the Fall session of swimming lessons at our local pool starts soon!
When Chicken Farmers of Canada told me that they were supporting Canada’s Swim Team initiative, I was very excited to help share that information with you! Rachel and Lauren have both been signed up for Canada’s Swim Team!
Are You a Swim Parent?
We know there are a lot of swim parents in Canada & we want to honour them each month. Do you go above and beyond to make sure you prepare nutritious, healthy meals in preparation for swimming? Swimming Canada and Chicken Farmers of Canada are jointly hosting a Swim Parent of the Month contest in recognition of parents who encourage eating well and being active as part of a healthy lifestyle.
Chicken Farmers of Canada, proud partner of Swimming Canada, supports the Canada’s Swim Team initiative to have every Canadian child swim at least 25 metres before completing elementary school. This initiative not only promotes cardiovascular health and flexibility, but endurance necessary for safety in pools and water. Swimming Canada, in turn, recognizes that a well-balanced diet filled with a variety of whole grains, fruits and vegetables and lean protein goes hand in hand with healthy living.
This is why the two organizations have partnered to bring you this exciting contest.
