MEND Returns to the Energetic City!
Fort St. John, BC - The City of Fort St John will be offering the MEND 5-7 program this spring.
MEND which stands for Mind, Exercise, Nutrition, Do it, is offered in only a few BC communities by trained professionals.
MEND is a fun, FREE 10 week program for families with 5-7 year old children.
The program educates and supports families wanting to live a healthy lifestyle.
Children accompanied by at least one parent or caregiver meet with program leaders once a week for ten weeks. The class is limited to no more than 12 children.
The first forty five minutes of each session is an interactive family discussion on topics like nutrition or behaviour, followed by one hour of fun exercise for children. During the exercise time, parents and caregivers meet for additional support and discuss goals and rewards, label reading and problem solving.
The program begins April 3, 2017 at the Child Development Centre on Mondays from 5:00 - 6:45 pm.
