Our Healthy Kids Project (HKP) here at ACCESS aims to promote healthier lifestyles for children, ages 5-10 years old, and their parents through active learning about physical activity, nutrition, environmental health and mental health. The goal of HKP is to try to help make living a healthy life fun and easy while engaging not only children but parents. This is the perfect opportunity for families to learn how daily behaviors impact personal health now and their influence on future health. It is possible to make a large impact by just a small change. Group sessions include height, weight, and blood pressure screening for children, health screenings and referrals, food preparation techniques, how to read nutrition labels, physical activity opportunities, safer household cleansers and a fieldtrip for families who attend regularly.
