Chris Canty Tackles Healthy Snacks

July 21, 2014 – Chris Canty teamed up with Food Bank For New York City to encourage healthy eating and exercise habits in Bronx teens. The Baltimore Ravens defensive end – and Bronx native – was in Mullaly Park with Food Bank's Change One Thing truck, which is traveling throughout the city this summer to bring neighborhoods healthy snacks and advice for leading a healthier lifestyle.

Canty made popcorn trail mix with cinnamon, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, unsalted almonds, dried cranberries, and dried apricots. "We really want to change the culture surrounding the eating habits for our young people," he said.

Food Bank's Change One Thing truck encourages teenagers to make smarter choices about their eating habits, such as drinking water instead of soda. Small adjustments like this can have a big impact on wellness, according to Food Bank's Chief Programs Officer Dominique Jones. "You can change one thing, and it will change the trajectory of your health," she said.
