Healthy Active Living

Daily Healthy Snacks
All participants are offered a healthy snack daily. A snack calendar is available in the monthly newsletter and the Youth Net building. Parents are asked to notify staff of any food allergies or restrictions at time of enrollment.

Daily Physical Activity
Youth will participate in 15 minutes of a fitness activity before they begin their homework. There are a variety of options available each day to suit the interests of all youth. Daily gym activities will also be provided after homework is completed.

Healthy Lifestyles Program
For children who qualify, Youth Net will provide monthly goal setting meetings with a Registered Nurse to create a healthy active living plan. Parents will be offered monthly care packages, telephonic services and opportunities to discuss progress and receive counsel from medical providers. As a Marshfield Clinic program, it is strongly encouraged that all participants receive their annual well child visits as recommended by pediatric guidelines.
