Fit Kid Squad

Our newest program, Fit Kid Squad, was piloted in 2013 with a group of 3rd grade girls who are dedicated to having a healthy heart through nutrition, exercise and helping others. The program meets once a month and encourages young children to become active members in their community through various activities, field trips, exercises, and health lessons that correspond with that month’s holiday, season, or theme. The troop is encouraged to carry out their core virtues throughout the month and can earn rewards to fill their “buckets” by doing various heart-healthy activities.

This program expanded in 2014 to include a two kindergarten and one 4th grade troop, and will serve as a template to help girls or boys across the country to develop life-long healthy habits in a very fun way and bring those messages into their families.
