Fit Kids is our school based lunchtime physical activity and healthy eating program. Currently it operates 3 days per week at Woodland Primary School in Grand Falls-Windsor, NL but we are always having discussions with other schools in the central area about offering it to other schools as well.
It has been running since 2008 and is focused on providing kids with one more opportunity to get active and learn about making healthy food choices. The program uses games and play to learn and develop fundamental motor skills that are important for all kids.
The program also uses different contests in the first half of the year and the second half of the year to promote the messages of active living and healthy eating. Most importantly the program tries to remind kids and encourage them that play is FUN and good for us!
