With the sponsorship of Verdant Health Commission, our Edmonds Club created a Healthy Habits curriculum for all Edmonds Club members. This program started in early January and ended mid February of this year. Healthy Habits is a six week structured program that empowers and educates our members on nutrition and staying active. Nutritionists from Swedish came in and help supported the program by educating children on portion sizes, and how to listen to our heart when it is at resting and active.
The kids and staff loved the program. We also included "family nights" with helped the parents to get involved as well. To kick it off we did a "walk/brunch", a 1.5 mile walk around the Edmonds Bowl. We also had the Edmonds PCC create a Walk Talk Taste for our kids and parents. It was so exciting to see how to make fun easy, healthy recipes and snack ideas!
The members learned a lot through this program and will continue to be apart of the next 2013 Healthy Habits!
