Residents attend free children's health fair in Crestview

"ROG is a nutritional program designed by me and my brother to teach kids at an early age to eat healthy," Chinnasami said.

ROG, which stands for red, orange and green, teaches children to identify foods that are healthy, those that are unhealthy and those that should be eaten with caution.

ROG uses the same method that motorists use when approaching a traffic light, Chinnasama said.

"Red is for unhealthy foods that are over 10 grams of fat, green foods are for healthy foods and yellow is for foods in the middle," Chinnasami said.

Adam and Alexander Chinnasami have been promoting the program to help children develop healthy eating habits.

 "Obesity is such a big problem in the United States ... our generation might not live as long as the preceding generation," Chinnasami said. "That's what inspired me and my brother with this program."

Event organizer Malcolm Haynes said this year’s blood donations were just shy of the Masons’ goal.
