Are you looking for ways to get your child active and eating healthy at home?
The Center for Health and Community Impact in the College of Education at Wayne State University has long been committed to promoting health initiatives through various school and community programs, and we are committed to this mission, now more than ever. The center's research teams and program staff have assembled daily and weekly resources containing age-appropriate activities to get children physically active and eating healthy--even if they are confined to their homes.
To access activities, resources, and fun challenges, you can find weekly calendars for elementary and middle school children here (be sure to download the documents to access the active links). You can also follow along on social media for new opportunities every weekday at 9am EST:
- Facebook (Wayne State University Kinesiology, Health & Sports Studies)
- Twitter (Wayne State KHS)
- Instagram (WSUKHS)
Feedback about this initiative from organizations, parents, and children alike has been overwhelmingly positive. For example, Danialle Karmanos, prominent social entrepreneur and philanthropist, and her family pledge their support of the #healthykidsquarantined initiative as it gains increased momentum in helping Michigan children and families stay active and eat healthy during stay-in-place and social distancing.
We may be social distancing, but we don't have to do it alone! Thanks for joining us in creating happy, healthy days for all #healthykidsquarantined. Please share this with anyone you know who might benefit. We are in this together!
