Healthy eating

KidShape workshops make eating healthy fun and tasty for even the pickiest eaters. Families practice research-backed and kid-tested tools to help the whole family eat healthier. KidShape nutrition topics include:

  • creating healthy plates
  • meal planning
  • healthy snacks and drinks
  • mindful eating
  • how to eat more plants
  • cooking healthy recipes that taste good

Each family receives an individual nutrition assessment with a Registered Dietitian when they enroll.    

Moving more

Families practice fun ways to move more and keep that momentum going long-after the KidShape program ends.  Each KidShape workshop includes physical activity breaks and tools to manage screen time and keep kids (and their parents) moving. Families connect with a KidShape wellness coach in between workshops each week to find new ways to stay active and healthy each day.  

Making health behavior changes

Families learn new ways to practice and adopt healthy behaviors that last a lifetime.  KidShape workshops help parents and their children:

  • manage stress
  • practice mindfulness
  • tame anxiety
  • set  goals
  • focus on the positive
  • improve self-esteem
  • thrive in uncertain times

KidShape builds healthy families

Since KidShape started in 1995, over 10,000 families have participated in the KidShape program.   The focus of the program is long-term lifestyle changes.  Families report increased fruit and vegetable consumption, decreased screen time and improved physical activity. In one study, the lifestyle changes made resulted in 87% of the children, who were overweight or obese, losing weight and 80% of maintaining that weight loss up to two years after the program ended.

KidShape in the Media

The KidShape program has been featured in local, national and international media, including 20/20, the Today Show, NBC Nightly News, the Discovery Channel, the Oprah Winfrey Show, Television New Zealand, Los Angeles Times, Latina magaizine,  and Time magazine.
