EmblemHealth and NYJTL have developed a new and exciting Healthy Living program that teaches students how to make healthy choices in a fun and engaging way!
The Healthy Living program gives kids in our afterschool and community programs – and their families! – tools to make valid and informed decisions about their health. As a part of the program, students receive a BodegaBuddy clip card that hooks onto backpacks, reminding them to make healthy choices when choosing afterschool snacks. For parents, portable Shopping & Recipe Cards and an informative Family Guide encourage healthier food choices while grocery shopping and cooking at home. These resources align with student learning in afterschool Healthy Living classes – and are available to you!
NYJTL kids in over 40 locations throughout New York City have increased their knowledge about nutrition and choice through the Healthy Living program. Over 3,000 families to date have received resources that link student learning with at-home healthy choices. Healthy Living will expand to even more school and community-based partnerships this year.
