The Dixie Classic Fair - can be Healthy :-)

We took the kids to the Dixie Classic fair today in Winston Salem NC, we had a great day and as a dietitian I was thrilled to have meet some lovely Master Gardeners who are promoting local community gardens and resources through the NC cooperative extension. Here's a wee interview below, but was cut short as our daughter was very keen to go on the rides :-) 

There was also a fun magic show with an agricultural and health education component so Rebecca the dietitian was impressed the fair was more than fried food. Although funnel cakes are good once in a while. I guess you know your a dietitian when the highlight of the fair was the homegrown veggies
