Children will be able to learn more about where their food comes from — and how eating locally grown food contributes to a healthy lifestyle — through a program that is coming to the Mosaic Central Farm Market in Merrifield on Sunday. The Junior League of Northern Virginia’s Market Explorers program is part of a larger effort to combat childhood obesity. “What we’re really looking to do is get kids excited and educate them about proper nutrition — not just that healthy food can be fun and good, but where it’s coming from,” said Lauren Riner, chairwoman of the organization’s Nutrition Education... Children learn that “it’s good to eat things that are fresh, in season, because it’s providing you with good nutrition [and] at the same time supporting your local farmers,” Riner said. “We want to let them know that it’s typically coming from a farm, whether it’s local” or not she added. Riner, 31, of Reston, said Junior League volunteers will lead interactive activities to engage the kids and get them thinking about the importance of exercise and healthy eating. After introducing the Market Explorers program last year at the Cascades Farmers Market in Sterling, the Junior League decided to expand it to the Mosaic District. Earlier this month, at the farmers market in Sterling, Junior League volunteers took kids on “scavenger hunts,” leading them through a sequence of stations at the vendors’ booths. At some booths, the children did simple exercises: squats, lunges and running in place. At other stations, volunteers asked questions designed to get the kids thinking about food production: How many eggs does a hen lay. What do plants need to grow. What does it mean to eat seasonally. At the end of the tour, the kids concocted “Berry Awesome Dippers” — mixing blueberries, strawberries, agave, lime juice and Greek yogurt — and dipped whole-grain tortilla chips in their creations. “They’re not just coming up and getting a snack,” Riner said. “They’re actually making it. So they can see that it’s not hard to make a snack, and they can make one that is healthy but tastes good at the same time. The Junior League of Northern Virginia is a nonprofit group with about 400 members who live or work in Arlington, Fairfax, Loudoun and Prince William counties and the city of Alexandria, said Beatriz Duque Long, president of the Junior League of...

Whether you’re after a fortnight of hedonism or a family holiday, Lisa Haynes finds there is space for everyone on the White Island. How to strike a balance between hedonism and family time in Ibiza. The new Grand Palladium White Island Resort & Spa is a happy mix – like a beach club mixed with a kids’ club. Opened earlier this summer, with more than 400 rooms, this gleaming white five-star has a fresh and modern feel with white tile wet rooms and flashes of magenta and mosaic prints in bedrooms. Master suites with private roof terrace and Jacuzzi overlooking the sea are a wish-you-were-here highlight. Positioned next to its older sister hotel Grand Palladium Palace, and joined by a wooden bridge, the double act allows for more choice when it comes to picking a pool or one of the four themed all-inclusive restaurants. The union makes the hotel complex the largest resort in Ibiza – complete with mini-golf, spa, tennis courts and vast outdoor entertainment theatre to keep families, groups and couples entertained. It’s possible to dip into all three large pools in the same afternoon (we know, we tried). Kick back on Balinese-style loungers around White Island’s lively pool with DJ-spun tunes. relax in cabanas at the wooden decked Bossa pool. or take little ones to the large family pool to splash in shallow waters. Huge sunken mosaic pool loungers at White Island prove especially popular in the searing midday sun. The resort’s Playa d’en Bossa location puts it in prime position for guests to enjoy the white sand beach, set just behind the hotel. A quick stroll through the gate and you hit exclusive beach club restaurants like Nassau, but DJ beats are barely audible from the hotel grounds and there’s a strict midnight shutdown policy. For parents who fancy a chilled daytime sangria minus distractions, the hotel’s Kids Club is on hand. There’s plenty to keep all ages occupied with shady indoor and outdoor spaces and different room ‘zones’ catering for toddlers, juniors and teens, with countless Wiis and PlayStations. The Zentropia spa is a must, minus kids (access approx. 50 for hotel guests) with treatments like aromatic balance body massages and Biologique Recherge oxygen facials. Apply a waterproof SPF and do a spa circuit of the sunny open-air thermal water pool with water jets, sensations shower and Jacuzzi beds, or relax at the dreamy indoor pool with overhead floating cloud lights, where.
