Activity Tree Website

Jan 26, 2011

As you all know, I have 3 young children and I am constantly worried about what they eat.  Is it healthy enough?  Am I promoting good eating habits?  Will they gain weight as they grow older because I haven't taught them how to eat nutritously?  You get the idea.

So, I was happy to come across a website called Activity Tree which is committed to fighting childhood obesity.  They also concentrate on promoting a active lifestyle for kids - using  both their bodies and minds. 

The neat thing about this site is that parents can go on there and type in their zip code to find kid's lessons, classes and camps in their area.  You'll find contact information for these groups, links to their websites, maps and detailed descriptions of their activities.

They also promote a Get Kids Active! Facebook Campaign which helps parents get their kids to become more active using the medium of social networkings.  Kids can pass along planned activity ideas, take fun polls and find and share new activity ideas.

Finally, I realize that many kids and families can't afford extra-curricular activities, so this site also offers scholarships.  There are two ways to apply for the scholarships.  One is to apply for kids' scholarships on the Activity Tree page and the other is through their facebook page, using the link: scholarships tab.

Make sure to check out this site if you are interested, like me, in keeping your kids fit!  They only have one life - let's make it a healthy one!
