With close to 1 in 3 children and teens overweight or obese in the U.S., the health and wellness of students today is a national priority, concerning everyone from policy makers to parents. Afterschool programs are an integral partner to keep kids active and healthy during the out-of-school-time hours and a vital piece of the solution to tackle the obesity epidemic by providing nutritious foods, keeping kids physically active and instilling healthy habits that can last a lifetime.
Tune into this webinar that will review the current afterschool landscape by looking at programs providing physical activity and healthy foods, as well as initiatives taking place in the afterschool field to strengthen healthy eating and physical activity offerings. Speakers on this webinar will cover new data from the latest America After 3PM special report, Kids on the Move: Afterschool Programs Promoting Healthy Eating and Physical Activity; discuss the Healthy Eating and Physical Activity (HEPA) Standards; and share insights, tips and resources that can help program providers with their food and physical activity offerings.
