Growing Healthy Kids Restores Energy Balance to Children's Health (and gives notice that childhood obesity has got to go!!)

Growing Healthy Kids teaches kids and adults that "small stuff matters" in its educational programs and workshops about healthy eating and physical activity. We recommend you start at the beginning with step one: assess your own weight and find out your own Body Mass Index. Are YOU at a healthy weight?? Go to to find the online BMI calculator for adults (height and weight) and kids (height, weight, age, and sex). If we are going to restore the energy balance for kids (to get them eating the right amount of food for the energy they use and need to maintain their bodies in tip-top condition), we better know where we stand. With 2 in 3 adults overweight or obese, who will mentor kids about how to get to a healthy weight if all they see is fat adults?

Help Growing Healthy Kids teach, empower, and inspire kids AND adults how to halt, reverse, and prevent childhood obesity. Join us next Thursday at STAX Restaurant at our MEET THE DESIGNERS party to follow-up our first annual event held last week at Windsor Beach Club.
