The Great Expectations®Healthy and Active Kids program will help motivate you and your kids to eat well and stay active. These two important concepts are the focus of this program. The goal is to prevent childhood obesity.
The program includes interactive tools designed for various age groups. It also has incentives for adopting healthy habits. Eligible children can also enjoy up to four visits with a registered dietitian who will counsel them on healthy food choices.
As supportive and encouraging parents, you have the power to influence the decisions that will affect the long-term health of your kids. Healthy habits are best started at an early age. Did you know that kids should engage in at least one hour of moderately vigorous activity every day? Help them reach that goal by limiting how much “screen time” they have watching television, playing video games or using the computer each day.
You may also be able to take advantage of special discounts at a My Gym Children’s Fitness Center. As a BlueChoice HealthPlan member, you will receive a 15 percent discount off the four-week tuition fee for classes and 15 percent off the Lifetime Membership fee.
