The KidzFIT curriculum is based upon biblical principles related to the health of the spirit; resources to stimulate the mind; and strategies to activate the body. Our hope is that this curriculum will provide children with sound knowledge about healthy living and inspire them to take proactive steps in maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
Our Mission is to provide education that equips children with knowledge and skills necessary to make sound decisions regarding the health of their spirit, mind, and body.
Our vision is to decrease the number of children diagnosed with childhood obesity and increase the amount of children who are healthy spiritually, mentally, and physically.
Childhood obesity has become an epidemic in the United States. According to a report by theCenters for Disease Control and Prevention (2012), There has been a decline in the prevalence among preschool-aged children. However,obesity among children is still too high. For children and adolescents aged 2-19 years, the prevalence of obesity has remained fairly stable at about 17% and has affected about 12.7 million children and adolescents for the past decade (para. 1). While there is no single solution to solving the epidemic, there are preventative strategies that can be taught and practiced.
