Experts agree there is no better time than preschool to start preventing childhood obesity and other lifestyle diseases. No other time in a child's life is education more effective in developing habits.
KID-FIT easily fits into your site's current schedule. Just allot a half hour of time to the program on one or more days during the week. You'll be amazed at how much the children learn. They also improve in fitness related tasks. Just request the pre and post test to validate results.
The curriculum focuses on 9 different body systems. Children learn basic anatomy, how to take care of their bodies, why it's important and how to make healthy eating choices. From the start, children learn exercise is fun, eating healthy keeps their bodies happy and rest is needed to grow and be strong.
