The Nutrition Program includes educational, hands-on sessions on nutrition and healthy eating for participants in grades 2-5. These sessions will be offered on a regular basis.
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 staff lead fitness activity before they begin their homework. 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.
