Steuben Rural Health Network Begins Healthy Habits for LifePosted on 1/9/2012
In 2012, the Steuben Rural Health Network will be offering Healthy Habits for Life, a free health and wellness curriculum for young children. Sesame Street created Healthy Habits for Life along with leading experts in the fields of Pediatric Obesity and Endocrinology, Pediatric Gastroenterology, Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, Pediatric Nutrition Education and Health and Physical Education, to respond to the growing obesity rate in American children. This initiative is geared to help young children and their caregivers establish an early foundation of healthy habits to last a lifetime. The ultimate goal of the program is to empower children and families with greater knowledge and appreciation for their bodies by exploring all the ways that moving is fun and healthy, and how it makes them happy, too.
For more information or if you would be interested in scheduling this program at your school, community center, church, etc. Please contact Nicole Jordan, Health Educator, Steuben Rural Health Network at 607-776-9467 x-226.
