The FitKids360 program is a seven week healthy lifestyle program developed to fight childhood obesity. This comprehensive program is designed to teach families about healthy eating habits, ways to be active, and how to break bad health habits. The combination of education and activities led by a team of local experts including a registered dietitian, behavioral health provider, exercise specialist, and others specially trained, make this a fun-filled, quality program.
FitKids360 is for children ages 5 to 16 with a BMI at the 85th percentile or higher and their family, including parents and siblings, or support partners. The class meets once per week for two hours.
Benefits of the FitKids360 program:
• FUN and 100% FREE
• Health tests at the start and end of the program
• Gas cards provided each week
• Participation incentives
• Innovative and evidence-based approach
• Continuing support after the program ends
Programmatic goals are to provide an effective solution for overweight children who have been unable to make effective changes on their own and to help kids and their families enjoy longer, healthier lives.
Sessions are planned for winter, spring, and fall. Referrals for a health care provider are required. Ask your child’s doctor if your family is a good fit for FitKids360. For more information contact Tanya Janes at 231.487.4183.
