Project Description

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Bureau of Child Welfare issued a report on Promoting Physical Activity and Healthy Nutrition, finding that afterschool programs:

■ Serve many groups of children most at risk for being overweight —specifically minorities and those in poverty;
■ Occur during a time of day when children are likely to be sedentary if not given active options;
■ Reach children at the developmental stage when they are forming the health patterns they will carry into adulthood;
■ Provide meals and snacks that can serve as nutritious examples for dietary habits;
■ Act as liaisons to parents who make critical nutrition and physical activity decisions for their children;
■ Have experience in making learning fun and modifying lessons for the needs of their students and clients;
■ Offer a supportive, safe environment in which children can feel comfortable trying new activities and building new skills; and
■ Are led by caring adults who can act as role models with positive influence on children’s health and nutrition choices.

Every snack we serve, every meal we make…
