We should get Sushi Carol

We should get Sushi Carol

Bucking Events CEO, Mark Rubiolo laughs every time he sees the eBay ad with the famous line “We should get sushi Carol“. He ponders whether Carol actually likes sushi? Or, what’s the relationship between the sushi man and Carol?

It forced Mark to think about Bucking Events and how we promote healthy outdoor activity.

AIHW Study

A 2021 study by the Commonwealth’s Australian Institute of Health and Welfare reports our children are literally becoming obese. In fact, 25% of young people aged 2-17 are obese or overweight.  This is because they are eating too many low nutrient foods and sugar sweetened drinks; don’t get enough physical activity; sit or lie too much on the couch; spend too much time in front of a tablet or TV screen instead of playing outside; and, don’t get enough sleep.

So, let’s get back to “We should get sushi Carol“.

According to an article in the Globe and Mail, Sushi is a very healthy meal! It’s a good source of heart healthy omega-3 fatty acids thanks to the fish it’s made with. Sushi is also low in calories – there’s no added fat. The most common type is nigiri sushi – fingers of sticky rice topped with a small filet of fish or seafood. However, you have to be careful about what sauces are used as they can pile on the calories. And, brown rice is healthier than white rice.

But sushi isn’t going to solve the obesity problem. The other obesity issues centred mainly around physical exercise!

The Australian Department of Health recommends that children get at least 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical exercise per day.

So, what’s “We should get sushi Carol” and physical exercise got to do with Bucking Events?

As Mark says, we don’t make healthy foods like sushi but we do provide opportunities for active physical play outdoors. Bouncing on a jumping castle, meeting the challenge of an inflatable obstacle course, or playing volleyball on our inflatable beach volleyball arena are all truly physical. If you want to join the war against obesity contact us for physical activity ideas about backyard birthday parties, council family fun days, fetes or corporate events.
