Afterschool programs have the power to improve children’s health by providing opportunities for physical activity and promoting healthy eating. Learn how Healthy U, a program of the NJ YMCA State Alliance, is using the CATCH curriculum to teach nutrition, increase physical activity, engage parents and implement Healthy Eating and Physical Activity (HEPA) standards in afterschool programs statewide. During this interactive workshop, participants will also learn classroom management skills for leading physical activity breaks with different age groups and strategies for engaging students in nutrition learning activities.
