Traveling for business or pleasure can sometimes lead to overindulging or forgetting to make healthy wellness and lifestyle choices. With that in mind, Omni Hotels & Resorts has embarked on an initiative that reinforces the brand’s commitment to staying healthy on-the-go. The new seven-part “Healthy Travel Series,” narrated by Omni’s Nutritionist Cheryl Forberg, features a number of videos around easy tips for maintaining a balanced lifestyle for the everyday traveler.
Below is the first video in the “Healthy Travel Series” featuring the new Omni Kitchen Kids backpack, as a part of Omni’s nationally-acclaimed Omni Sensational Kids Program. The video highlights healthy snacks and Chef Cheryl’s recipe for Zoo-licious trail-mix.
