Dr. Riba recently spoke to Newport Beach Junior Guards, whose main objective is to provide ocean safety and training for children ages nine through sixteen. On the beach, she spoke about the importance of a healthy diet and gave nutrition tips to almost 1300 Junior Guards and instructors. Dr. Riba also trained their instructors on nutrition.
“It was my first barefoot speech to date!” said Dr. Riba. “I spoke about avoiding sugary drinks, how to combat dehydration and how to eat a healthy diet by adding fruits and vegetables to all meals and snacks and avoiding processed foods.”
“I am such a fan of this incredible fitness and nutrition program,” Dr. Riba said. “What a joy to speak to such an incredible crew—they are such an impressive, dedicated and unassuming group of heroes!”
What a productive and fun day at the beach!
