The Salvation Army Senior Services and Kroc Center have partnered together to present Breakfast for Your Brain, a 12-session program for ages 50 plus to learn the benefits of consistent mental exercise combined with a commitment for physical activity and good nutrition.



The program began February 9 and runs through March 25, with two classes being held weekly from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. at The Salvation Army Kroc Center, 2825 Y Street, Omaha.

“The Omaha community is going to enjoy our Breakfast for Your Brain program. It’s new, its fun, it’s challenging,” said D.D. Launderville, Omaha Senior Services Director. “We read about the importance of exercising the body and healthy eating, but we must not ignore brain fitness.”

The program is aimed at helping the 50 plus learn better ways of managing their health by setting goals that are do-able, working with others, finding support and solutions to problems, relaxing and managing stress with the main focus on brain, body and spiritual health.

Kroc Health & Fitness Manager Sandy Andersen said, “The brain is a muscle like any other muscle in your body and needs to be exercised too. This class will help older adults exercise the skills that work out the brain while having fun.”

The program is geared towards the ever-growing population of baby boomers. Space is limited with a capacity of 12-15 people per session.
