Program funded: October 2014 through September 2016
Healthy Habits offers both nutrition and fitness programming designed to improve the lifestyle choices of elementary school-aged youth in the community. With support from Verdant, the Edmonds Boys & Girls Club administers this program through seven sites in the Edmonds area. The children participating have fun and are active while learning from the hands-on activities planned. They are exposed to a diverse array of sports, including cross country, lacrosse, track & field, and flag rugby. Nutrition curriculum used is rooted in the USDA’s Choose My Plate materials. All elementary youth in our community are encouraged to participate in this program for free.
