Combating Childhood Obesity
This program focuses on the importance of understanding the relationship between food and physical movement and their effects on weight and health. The program strives to help prevent health problems through discussion of possible causes and effects of unhealthy life styles while encouraging children (and adults) to set realistic goals and achieve them through small changes. Other issues addressed include considering foods as fuel for the body, increasing daily physical movement by making more active choices for free time and promoting sensitivity, understanding and acceptance of differences in body types.
With this program Kids on the Block and Hot Yoga Bowling Green have partnered. Anice Hot Yoga Bowling Green owner teaches students how to do some yoga poses after the Kids on the Block presentation. (this is available with smaller groups of 100 or less students).
