It’s no surprise that parents might need some help understanding what it means to eat healthy. From what used to be called “Food Guide Pyramid” to the MyPlate, can be unclear. If you didn’t know, the USDA MyPlate program teaches nutrition on an actual plate with the five food categories, fruits, vegetables, grains, proteins and dairy.
Our style to teaching nutrition is simple and fun — using hands-on, creative ways to emphasize the importance of eating healthy. We incorporate fun activities and interactive demonstrations that keep kids interested and involved.
Although weight is an issue in some children, we do not put emphasis on weight or weight loss. We do not believe children should be placed on diets. Instead, we instill healthy attitudes about food and promote a positive body image.
In K4F Nutrition, we teach children that through making good choices, eating healthy (most of the time!) and exercising, their bodies will naturally become healthy and strong. They will look and feel better about themselves. This in turn, helps them to accomplish more in school, on the playground, and at home.
For our children’s future!
MOVE IT! Kidz 4 Fitness is a fitness/physical activity and nutrition program designed for kids, 12 months to 16 years of age. Classes are scheduled throughout the day, 6 days per week. From September through June, we begin our day at 6:00am and finish at 9:00pm, Monday to Friday. On Saturdays, hours are from 7:00 am - 4:00 pm. During summer months, hours vary. Below is a summary of a few of our programs. For more information, please contact us.
In Creative Art Lounge, kids explore art as they learn and develop their own artistic self-expression and creativity styles. Uniqueness and originality is encouraged as each child develops a sense of pride through each accomplishment. Art promotes social skills, improves visual acuity and improves fine motor skills. Children will learn about color mixing, patterns, composition and more.
WE COME TO YOU!
Sometimes groups cannot afford the time or the money to bring participants to extracurricular activites outside their facility. Because of limitations, children miss out on the opportunities and benefits of participating in extracurricular activities. Well, we can help. We bring the activities, which are tailored to each site and adjusted through careful planning with your Director and our Program Coordinator, to your child's facility. We serve:
- recreational centers
- homeschool and cyber school programs
- and other off-site venues
We believe our Mobile program is a way to differentiate your preschool, daycare or elementary school from competitors by offering this fun, enrichment program. We provide the lesson, equipment and materials for activities and games. All a provider needs to do is provide a safe,clean room to host the class, distribute materials (which we provide) and help create buzz! Registration MUST be completed by the facility prior to scheduled class/activity.
Every participant aged 4 and older and enrolled in Kidz 4 Fitness for one year is eligible to receive one school backpack with school supplies in August of each year.
