Families Helping Families
Thursday, May 1, 2014 to Saturday, May 31, 2014
Once again PCC Healthy Kids will join forces with Seattle Children's Hospital for Families Helping Families.
From May 1 to 31, PCC will donate five percent of PCC Kid Picks product sales, up to a total of $10,000, in support of two Seattle Children's nutrition outreach programs:
ACT! (Actively Changing Together!) is a 12-week healthy lifestyle program for overweight and obese youth (eight to 14 years old) and their parents at YMCAs in King, Snohomish and Thurston counties. The program teaches ways to improve nutrition and increase physical activity to help develop healthy lifestyles. Families take part in fun and energizing games and activities and learn about nutrition, meal preparation and good ways to keep hunger satisfied. The program does require a referral from a healthcare provider, and at least one adult family member must participate.
Fit 4 You — an obesity prevention program offered by the Odessa Brown Children's Clinic in Seattle's Central District — identifies patients who are overweight and educates the entire family about grocery shopping, cooking and nutrition.
Your purchase of Kid Picks products during May will benefit both of these programs, providing an easy way for families to help families while enjoying delicious, healthy food.
