Our comprehensive Grow Fit™ program is designed to help pave the way for a lifetime of healthy habits. By encouraging balanced nutrition practices and physical activity in early childhood, we're helping children reach their full potential and prevent chronic disease later in life. We have joined the Partnership for a Healthier America, and are combining forces with leaders in other industries in a commitment to achieve the Let's Move! Child Care standards. The program includes the following goals to help build a generation of healthy children:
The focus on healthy lifestyles comes as the U.S. is experiencing an increase in health risks directly tied to poor food choices and physical inactivity. Studies show that one in five children is overweight or obese by age 6. We’re concerned about these trends and have joined Let’s Move! Child Care and other related efforts across the nation in the fight to prevent childhood obesity.
We provide a variety of healthy food choices during meals and snacks and encourage children to try new foods. You're welcome to sample them for yourself! Ask your school director for more details.
Find a school near you and schedule a tour to find out more about how we can help your child make healthy choices a part of their everyday lives.
