HEALTH & NUTRITION
Too many children do not embrace healthy eating habits and fitness activities. According to the National Initiative for Children’s Healthcare Quality, Data Resource Center for Child & Adolescent Health.
As part of the expanded D.E.S.T.I.N.Y.'S Child Tutoring program, health and nutrition education is now a part of the After-School Program curriculum. We focus on the importance of fruits and vegetables. Emphasis is placed on how fruits and vegetables provide many essential vitamins and minerals for our bodies.
Fruits & Vegetables, such as apples, oranges, bananas, spinach, broccoli, cauliflower, and tomatoes will be served to the children as part of their after-school meals and snacks.
Fruits and vegetables served during the snack time will be the focus of study and discussion. Children will receive handout to review and to take home and share with family.
Exercise is essential for improving overall health, maintaining fitness and helping to prevent the development of obesity, hypertension and cardiovascular disease.
D.E.S.T.I.N.Y.'S Child After-School Tutoring program will provide a structured fitness curriculum. This will include indoor/outdoor activities led by trained fitness leaders as well as exercises on DVD’s that are kid fitness friendly.
