2010, Sage Fruit Company implemented the Kids in Force program in order to educate our youth on the importance of health and nutrition. Childhood Obesity is a growing epidemic that is affecting our future, and through our program, we hope to encourage children to make healthier decisions.
The Kids in Force program is a free service to our community. Kids can find downloadable activities on our website that allow them to interact and learn about nutrition and leading a healthy lifestyle. Not only are we encouraging healthier eating, but we are highlighting the importance of daily exercise.
Diet plays a key role in an individual’s health, appearance, performance, and well-being. Sage Fruit wants to encourage children to make healthier snack choices by providing great tasting and healthy alternatives to the usual on-the-go junk food. We hope to influence better grocery buying habits in parents, and overall changes in the household.
Get out and play!
Studies show that youth should engage in moderate to vigorous physical activity for a minimum of 20 minutes, three or more days of the week to promote health and chronic disease prevention as adults. The National Association for Sport and Physical Education emphasizes the need to initiate even higher levels of activity in younger children of elementary school age. It is recommended that at least 30 to 60 minutes of activity on most, or all, days of the week is focused on with developmentally appropriate activities.
