Healthy Kids

Healthy Kids is a weekly program that teaches children, ages 3 to 4, basic nutrition concepts (e.g., "Fruits are Good for our Hearts", "Protein Builds Strong Muscles", and "Healthy Snacks Keep Us Full") and provides developmental opportunities in many fundamental motor skills (e.g., running, hopping, sliding, kicking) through age-appropriate, fun, and engaging activities. Participants also receive a healthy snack and gain additional lesson reinforcement through craft activities.

Healthy Kids runs each semester and fills up quickly, so if you’re interested in signing up your child this semester or next, please contact the Morrison-Bruce Center at morrisonbrucecenter@jmu.edu.
