A community-based program for families focused on healthy lifestyles.

First Steps: Fit4Allkids is a free, fun and interactive program designed for families with elementary school-age children at an unhealthy weight or with rapid weight gain. We offer our six-week community program in cooperation with the City of St. Petersburg Parks and Recreation at Campbell Park Recreation Center.

Xổ số DanongWe help families learn to make healthy lifestyle choices through hands-on education and fun fitness activities. Each session consists of separate child/parent nutrition and lifestyle information sessions, physical activity for all participants (either separate or as a group) and one family activity that relates to subject focus for the week.

Weekly topics include:

  • Making healthy snack, meal and beverages choices
  • Portion sizes
  • Food label reading
  • Family meals
  • Age-appropriate exercise and fitness activities

About the Class

Fit4Allkids is available to children age 7 to 12 who have been identified by their physician as being at an unhealthy weight. A physician referral is required to participate. At least one parent/caregiver is required to attend; however, the entire family is encouraged to attend.

Class meets weekly and children should be able to independently function in a class setting. Families should have reliable transportation and no other attendance barriers. Closed-toe shoes and active clothing is required. Participants should arrive ready to get moving!
