Deamer is the third weekly winner in the Healthy Families BC contest and is now enjoying a five-piece "Essential Set" by Le Creuset.
For six weeks, prizes with an estimated value of $500 are for grabs. A new mixer, cookware set or rice cooker could be yours just by becoming a part of Healthy Families BC. The grand prize of groceries for a year, valued at $5,000, and customized meal plans by a registered dietitian will help create a healthier lifestyle for you and your family.
Chronic disease - such as heart disease, diabetes, stroke and cancer - is the largest single burden on the health of British Columbians. Healthy Families BC is the Province's health-promotion and prevention strategy. It is focused on reducing chronic diseases and promoting healthy weights through healthy eating and physical activity. The strategy will see the implementation of a variety of healthy living programs to improve health and promote wellness in every part of B.C.
By registering for the contest you also gain access to the Healthy Families BC Online Community. Here you can explore a wide range of healthy living resources from recipes to videos to blogs by registered dietitians and so much more.
