Subway and Tidelands Health join forces to celebrate World Food Day by offering fun nutrition workshops for children and families

Subway and Tidelands Health are teaming up to celebrate World Food Day by helping local children and families learn about nutrition at a series of fun, interactive “Share the Color” food workshops in mid-October.

Tidelands Health dietitians will share their expertise at three workshops at Subway restaurants in our region. The free events, timed around World Food Day on Oct. 16, are designed to teach children how to make better food choices and why it’s important colorful fruits and vegetables are part of their daily meals and snacks.

Families will learn basic nutrition information with a hands-on sub making activity and free lunch. Children will also receive food explorer coloring book to take home

“We’ll explore nutritional concepts in a way that’s engaging and exciting for children,” said Jamie Kandora, a registered dietitian with Tidelands Health. “By connecting smiles with good health, our goal is to create a positive impression about nutrition and encourage children to make good food choices as they grow up.”

Kandora will lead food workshops in Florence and Myrtle Beach. Fellow Tidelands Health registered dietitian Stephanie May will share her nutritional expertise with families in Murrells Inlet.

The Share the Color event schedule is:

  • Monday, Oct. 16, 9:30 – 10:30 a.m., Subway restaurant, 1945 10th Ave. N. in Myrtle Beach
