Teaching Kids to Be Healthy with Healthy U: Eating Right, Physical Exercise
The first week of November, Raritan Valley Y launched its Healthy U kickoff event, giving kids in the preschool and after school programs a full clinic on being a healthy kid—including eating right and getting physical activity. The Y joins in the statewide Healthy U program to prevent childhood obesity.
Children received a presentation from volunteer Amada Jajalla including learning to recognize “go foods,” “slow foods,” and “whoa foods.” They also learned the importance of physical activity to stay healthy as part of the CATCH (Coordinated Approach to Child Health) program.
Call the YMCA at (732) 257-4114 to learn more about YMCA child care. Or explore our website to learn about our infant and toddler care, our preschool, or our after school care. Like us on Facebook for photos from Healthy U and other fun YMCA events.
