Shouldn't he have more to look forward to than diabetes, high blood pressure and asthma?
According to the New York City Department of Health, 43% of public elementary school students are overweight and 76% of New York City children are not getting the recommended five daily servings of fruit and vegetables. The Children's Aid Society has responded to these disturbing statistics with a series of Go!Healthy initiatives designed to educate families about healthful cooking and eating. Go!Healthy programs include:
- Go!Kids - a 24-week food and fitness curriculum for toddlers and their parents
- Youthmarkets - a program in conjunction with CENYC designed to bring fruits and vegetables to low-income neighborhoods via student-run greenmarkets
- Healthy Meals - a set of healthful recipes used to feed 1,500 children every day in our community centers and programs
With your support, The Children's Aid Society can continue to develop innovative programs that will ensure a healthy and happy future for our youth.
