Fit for Fun
Fit for Fun introduces children to health and nutrition concepts through a wide range of hands-on and fun activities. Join us on every Wednesday at 4:00pm for an opportunity to hear health or nutrition-related stories, engage in an interactive nutrition-based activity, and participate in physical activities that are designed to encourage movement and fitness for children of all ages and abilities.
For young children, these activities will improve fine and gross motor skills, spatial awareness, and agility while older children will have the opportunity to increase their flexibility, aerobic fitness, and muscle strength. Through this program, children will cultivate skills that are vital to long-term health and cognitive growth. These behaviors, which are proven to positively impact academic performance as well as physical and emotional wellbeing, play a key role in promoting positive futures for Mississippi’s children.
Join us this January to learn about one of our body’s systems and either play a game or do an activity to help reinforce what we learned. This month, we will learn about our cardiovascular, immune, and digestive systems.
