To help combat childhood obesity MARTIN’S is arming parents and kids with the tools they need to live a healthier life in their new initiative Passport to Nutrition, a Kids Healthy Ideas Program.
Valerie Waters, RDN will be teaching a four-week summer program for children ages 6-10 years old and their parents to arm them with the tools they need to live a healthy lifestyle.
Each of the four 75-minute classes are designed to give kids and their parents the information and motivation to achieve a healthier weight by improving one’s lifestyle and eating habits. Among the topics to be covered include the food pyramid, understanding food labels, how to integrate enough fruits and vegetables into one’s diet and ideas for healthy snacks. Kids will also learn about nutrition through a store scavenger hunt and other games.
The four classes are scheduled to begin the week of July 12.
There is a $20 registration fee and space is limited.
