Healthy and Active Youth Program

Baptist Health Healthy and Active Youth Program (HAYP) is a free virtual program for youth, ages 11 to 17 and their families. It incorporates all elements of health, including nutrition and physical activity. Each online session has fun and interactive healthy living exercises that can be incorporated for the whole family. Both the kids and their families will be encouraged and expected to participate in activities, because weight management and reaching personal weight loss goals at any age is based on lifestyle intervention and change. 

What's Included:

There will be 8 health and wellness sessions starting on September 22, 2020 and ending December 22, 2020. 

Topics covered include: 

  • Beneficial apps and resting metabolic rate (RMR) calculation
  • Snacks on the go
  • Reduced sodium favorites
  • What you can do with lettuce
  • Cooked and un-cooked portions
  • Sugar drinks and their effects
  • Fruit and veggie displays
  • Breakfast ideas
There will also be a weekly newsletter and email follow-ups for daily steps, projects and more.
