Because of skyrocketing rates of childhood obesity in young children and teens, parent groups chose to implement a Healthy Kids Club program policy in collaboration with Food 4 Less to help fight childhood obesity in the North Hills and Panorama City area.
This Friday, a multicultural Festival will be presented at Noble Elementary School with students, parents, administrators, and community partners including a celebration with dance performances, outdoor Zumba classes and awards for the piloted program, “HEALTHY KIDS CLUB” which partners with Food for Less and is sponsored by Dignity Health Northridge Hospital. NHMC Center for Healthier Communities, Heath Educators, Joel Torres and Dalia Rodriguez, facilitated meetings to develop the Healthy Kids Club pilot program. Parents volunteered to help during the inaugural event on April 12th that launched this 6 week-long event. Parents and Health Educators have worked together to make this highly successful Healthy Kids Club program an integral part of the children’s daily lives.
