The Goal

  • to teach children and families to make healthy lifestyle choices and;
  • to teach children and their parents how to make healthy food choices

The Facts On Obesity

Statistics show that the rise of overweight children in the United States is of great concern, and the Santa Maria Valley is now struggling with this issue. According to the California Department of Education’s physical fitness test results for the Gold Coast Region for 2005-2006, among 5th, 7th and 9th graders in Orcutt and Santa Maria, 38.3% and 36.0% were overweight.

How You Can Help

One way that families locally can support this program is to purchase the quarterly plush items and books that can be found at any checkout at the Santa Maria Kohl’s Department store. At just $5 each, Kohl’s Cares books are a great affordable way to easily add high-quality well-known favorites to a child’s bookshelf, while supporting children’s health and education initiatives nationwide and in our own community. One hundred percent of the net profit benefits health and educational opportunities for children.
