A Nutrition and Fitness Program for Kids and Families

Getting kids to eat their fruits and vegetables often ends up being a second job for parents. With soda, candy and processed foods readily available, it’s no wonder children tend to pick pizza over spaghetti squash when left to their own devices.

Sponsored by Torrance Memorial's Lundquist Lurie Cardiovascular Institute, and Torrance-South Bay YMCA, Healthy Ever After for Kids is a fun and interactive series of six meetings for overweight children, ages 7 to 13. While kids are making new friends, a team of nutrition and fitness specialists teach and encourage the participants to make choices for a healthier future.

Kids will learn the benefits of movement by using games, dance and strength training, healthy eating habits, how to set lifestyle goals and how to make changes in order to reach those goals. Parents learn too. A parent or guardian attends all class meetings.

Meetings are held once a week and prior registration is required. Fitness classes are free of charge and all material is provided by the instructor.
