Another visit from Allied/Nationwide to the United Way Fit Kids program presented opportunities for employees and students to connect and learn about healthy eating and active living.Allied/Nationwide has come out multiple times in the past few months, making a huge difference for United Way Fit Kids! Additional volunteers recently went to the Health Education Council site of United Way’s Fit Kids program. Volunteers took a tour of the Grant High School garden and demonstration kitchen before helping high school students lead activities with a group of elementary school age Fit Kids who were on a field trip to visit the garden make healthy berry pancakes and smoothies while learning about kitchen basics and safety.

Fit Kids is working to decrease childhood obesity by preventing weight gain for children at risk of obesity and promoting weight loss for children who are already obese. Youth and their parents learn about the importance of healthy nutrition and physical activity, as well as how to include them in their daily lives. And we’re seeing great results!

An additional thank you to the Health Education Council staff and students for being wonderful hosts.
