In celebration of NatureSweet’s new, bite-sized, yellow NatureSweet SunBursts tomato, the company donated 30 yellow strollers to families with SAMMinistries on June 26. As part of the project, Stroller Strides is providing two free stroller-based exercise classes to SAMMinistries families. SAMMinistries families will use their NatureSweet SunBursts strollers at Saturday’s exercise class, and other San Antonio residents are invited to bring their strollers and kids to participate as well. Participants will learn how to incorporate their strollers into a robust workout and show their children the importance of exercise as part of a healthy lifestyle.

“Our newest, sweetest tomato yet, NatureSweet SunBursts are a delicious snack–packed with great flavor and a healthy dose of optimism,” said Jane Raynandi, brand manager for Desert Glory, producer of NatureSweet tomatoes. “Through this project with SAMMinistries and Stroller Strides, we hope to bring a little sunshine to our community and encourage healthy snacking.”

“SAMMinistries recognizes the value of healthy choices and the essential part they play in our overall well-being. So, we are excited to be a partner with NatureSweet SunBursts and Stroller Strides as they enhance the lives of the families we serve,” said Navarra Williams, president and CEO of SAMMinistries. “We are thankful for the wonderful gift of the strollers for our families. I know they will be appreciated by our moms and their kids as they work toward a healthier future.”

“We’re excited to partner with NatureSweet SunBursts to teach new moms the advantages of leading healthy lifestyles by incorporating exercise and healthy eating into their weekly routines,” said Lisa DeArmond, owner of North San Antonio Stroller Strides. “These small changes to their exercise and eating habits, including healthy snacking, have a huge impact on their well-being and that of their children.”
