Healthy Kids is specifically aimed at giving kids in St. Petersburg the knowledge and tools to live their healthiest and best life. Our team of Community Health Leaders work to reduce the prevalence of childhood obesity and encourage health behaviors in children and families through our St Pete Healthy Kids programs.
Once a month, Healthy St. Pete staff members lead elementary-age children in nutrition and fitness lessons at each of the City of St. Petersburg’s 11 recreation centers. Topics include trying new fruits and vegetables, learning about hidden sugar in beverages, and the importance of drinking water.
Monthly challenge calendars are available for the teens participating in TASCO programming. Calendars include daily physical activity tasks as well as healthy shopping and cooking ideas. The goal is to have teens be self-reliant and able to make lifelong healthy decisions.
