Children take part in 60 minutes of specially designed, disguised fitness games three times each week and 60 minutes of structured, fitness classes twice each week. In addition, children learn food groups, how to identify healthy foods and their components, MyPlate, how to read food labels and more through nutrition education three times each week as a part our comprehensive food program, which includes a healthy snack and dinner.
