Fit to be Kids, Inc. (F2BK) is a 501(c)(3) community outreach organization that provides prevention, awareness and advocacy education about childhood obesity, and the health risks that accompany this disease, to at-risk youth and their families - empowering them to live healthier, wholesome lives while promoting physical activity, nutrition education and social/emotional character development through experience-based enrichment programs that ultimately impact the overall well-being of our communities.
This is the gist of what we’ve learned...
Childhood obesity is merely a symptom of systemic designs, typically due to poverty, which deters youth from the outdoors (physical activity) and access to nutrition (fresh fruits and vegetables). We have also learned that experience-based learning is much more effective in long-term behavior change.
.. and this is what we’re doing about it:
We have created an experience-based learning environment where children can develop necessary social, emotional, cognitive and dexterous skills through specific physical activities and nutrition education that will empower them in leading a balanced and wholesome life.
