Trade group foundation launches kids’ guide to healthy living
"Over the past 18 months, we’ve learned that organizations serving youth are looking for new, affordable tools to help them discuss the importance of a healthy lifestyle, and that's why we created the Leader's Guide," said Richard Elder, Senior Director of IFIC. "We believe the content from the successful Kidnetic.com Web site, combined with this new hands-on activity book that can be downloaded from the Internet at no cost, is an exciting new resource that meets these needs."
All content on Kidnetic.com, and in the Leader's Guide, is reviewed for scientific accuracy and appropriateness by each of five organizations that formed a partnership with the IFIC Foundation to create tools designed to help prevent childhood obesity. These organizations are: the American Academy of Family Physicians, American College of Sports Medicine, American Dietetic Association, International Life Sciences Institute Center for Health Promotion, and the National Recreation and Park Association.
