A new documentary, “Big Healthy Life: what’s your recipe?,” is scheduled to premiere this month as part of a campaign to help young people and parents understand the life-long effects of nutrition and exercise habits.
It shows how healthy eating and regular exercise can promote better health and reduce the risk of disease and medical costs later in life. It also highlights some community issues like having access to nutritious food and safe places to exercise can help families establish healthier habits.
A free public premiere of the documentary will be shown at 6 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 19, at the South Broadway Cultural Center, 1025 Broadway Blvd. SE in Albuquerque. The documentary will air on local broadcast stations throughout the state, beginning Saturday, Aug. 26.
The target audience will be teenagers, parents, educators and community leaders, according to Chris Schueler of Christopher Productions, who produced the documentary with support from city, county and state organizations, health insurance providers and other health related organizations.
