Healthy Lifestyle After-School Program

Get Up & Go

Inspiring kids across our community to get moving, eat healthy

The building blocks of a healthy lifestyle start with good nutrition and regular physical activity. Get Up & Go by Children’s Health℠ supported by Kohl’s Cares is taking our “show on the road” to teach children how they can lead healthier lives – and why it’s fun to be fit!  We’ve partnered with area schools and after-school programs to deliver nutrition education classes to students throughout North Texas.

Our team is making it easy for kids to learn and understand the value of building healthy habits at a young age. We offer four-week, six-week and eight-week nutrition education classes held in school and after school for children ages 6-11.  We can train the school staff to offer the program, or provide a turn-key option where our health educator teaches the entire curriculum. With either format, we are empowering schools to help their students be healthier.

Inspire your school to get active, be healthy and have fun

During each class, children learn healthy lifestyle behaviors, including the importance of eating fruits and vegetables and the benefits of being active.  Our goal is to help students learn how to make healthy choices and why it is important for their overall health.
