Fit Kids

What is Fit Kids? Fit Kids_Camp ELLI Brookside 2022

The Fit Kids Program relaunched during Summer 2022. Fit Kids teaches elementary aged school children about nutrition and physical activity through fun, interactive lessons during after school programs and summer camps. In each hour-long lesson, students participate in 30 minutes of nutrition education and 30 minutes of physical activity.

Nutrition lessons are based on the US Department of Agriculture MyPlate nutritional guidelines and include games, crafts, activities, and discussion. 

During physical activity time, the students play games and activities such as relay races, jumping rope, and learn that physical activity can be fun and should be part of their everyday lives.
