TOMS RIVER, NJ – Imagine kids eating their vegetables without
whining and pouting at the dinner table. Or having teenagers dust
mop the hardwood floors in their slippers while dancing to music
and burning some calories? Sounds too good to be true, but it isn’t.
On Wednesday, January 20, the public is invited to attend a free
program presented by the Saint Barnabas Health Care System called
The Sneaky Chef & Sneaky Fitness: Foolproof Ways to Sneak Healthy
Foods and Healthy Lifestyles into Your Home. The event will be
held at the Crystal Point Yacht Club on River Road in Point Pleasant
beginning at 6 p.m.
The Sneaky Chef is the brainchild of Missy Chase Lapine, whose New
York Times bestseller, The Sneaky Chef: Simple Strategies
for Hiding Healthy Foods in Kids’ Favorite Meals, inspired
a whole new brand in the healthy eating/lifestyles category.
Recently, Lapine co-authored a new book with celebrity fitness
trainer Laryssa DiDio called Sneaky Fitness: Fun, Foolproof Ways
to Slip Fitness into Your Child’s Everyday Life.
Both Lapine and DiDio will entertain the audience at this program
with a fun-filled interactive presentation. Lapine and Didio will
demonstrate actual Sneaky Fitness Activities and famous Sneaky
Chef foods that will energize participants to return home with
life changing knowledge to benefit families for a lifetime.
Dianne DeOliveira, The Breeze Radio morning show host, will be
the emcee for the program, which is presented in partnership with
Friends Health Connection. Health education displays, door prizes
and a free dinner will be provided to all participants, though
the program is for adults only. Both Lapine and DiDio will be available
after the program for a book signing.
Pre-registration is required to attend by calling 1-888-724-7123.
Seating is limited. Admission tickets will mailed to those who
pre-register and are required for entrance into the program.
