Teens and Club Kids Think, Eat Happier and help change Habits at B&GCE
Kids Cafe’ offers Healthy Choices, Leadership Development and Community Service opportunities for Boys & Girls Club of Easton members
Triple Play: A Game Plan for the …Mind, Body and Soul is a dynamic new Boys & Girls Club initiative that demonstrates how eating right, keeping fit and forming positive relationships adds up to a healthy lifestyle for Club members. As Club professionals, we teach youth how to understand nutrition and make better food choices. We engage members in daily physical activities for the health of their growing bodies and demonstrate the fun in staying fit.
Healthy Habits is the “Mind” component of Triple Play, where eating smart and maintaining physical fitness are emphasized to improve the overall well-being of Club members.
The Healthy Habits program is designed to:
• Teach young people about the benefits of healthy habits such as eating right and being physically active.
• Equip young people with skills to adopt healthier habits by participating in fun and engaging learning activities both at the Club and at home.
• Encourage young people to take small steps toward positive behavior change.
A group of 12 club members comprised of Torch & Keystone Clubs representatives working under the guidance and direction of Ms. Stephanie Santos, Keystone Club Advisor are taking the lead in learning about healthy choice, understanding kitchen management, creating healthy menu choices and preparing and serving meals to their peers and younger members at the Club.
