Why to Go Kids!

Monday, March 31, 2003

Class designed to help healthier lifestyles, eating habits

In addition to the April 24 satellite videoconference on childhood obesity, ISU Extension is also starting up a series of classes that will teach kids and parents how to become more active and make healthier lifestyle choices.

Way to Go Kids! is a new eight-class program for parents and children that will take a look at a variety of issues surrounding childhood inactivity and nutrition, including eating habits, exercise and lifestyle choices. The first class will be held on Tuesday, April 8, at 6:30 p.m. at the Storm Lake Middle School.

ISU Extension officials will be bringing the program to Storm Lake for the first time due to a grant that allowed the organization to purchase the Way to Go Kids! curriculum. Buena Vista County Extension Education Director Rhonda Christensen said she is excited about the possibilities of the program.
