Healthy Body, Healthy Mind - Fight Against Childhood Obesity  



 

The problem of childhood obesity in the United States has grown considerably in recent years. Between 16 and 33 percent of our children and adolescents are obese. Overweight children are much more likely to become overweight adults unless they adopt and maintain healthier patterns of eating and exercise habits. 

As a result, Cesar Chavez Elementary School is starting a new diet and exercise program called, Healthy Body, Healthy Mind. This program will be open to 100 students who are committed to getting healthy. Students who participate will be coming to school on a daily basis at 7:30am work walking and yoga exercises. To meet nutritional needs the students will participate in a healthy snack workshop, where they will be able to make healthy snacks and take home recipes for healthy eating. 

Kick-Off Ceremony
Date: February 3, 2014
Time: 7:30am to 8am
Location: Cesar Chanvez Elementary School - 5243 Oakland, Los Angeles 90032

The program will begin February 3rd through the end of April. Bring your sneakers, and join the students as they walk our community into a healthier lifestyle.
