Announcing: Flat Apple 2020!

As a way of encouraging healthy choices, we are going forward with plans for this summer’s Flat Apple 2020 since it can easily be adapted to a virtual format.   So, I am asking for your help to get the word out to every child you know from ages preschool to high school.

They can register online under the Quick Clicks on the main page of this website as well as find the download link for the Activity Tracker Sheet.

In addition, both forms are also available on this website’s Flat Apple Page under Programs.

If it is appropriate for your organization, please download and print both the Application and Tracker Sheets to distribute as paper copies to your clients/customers.

To help kids get started, our website has some at home, on-line, and virtual suggestions for activities that kids can log on their sheets.

They can earn tickets by posting “Healthy Selfie” and sending us their Healthy Videos.

We will again offer a bike as our grand prize and many types of gift cards for the other prizes.

So please help us encourage kids to stay active from June 1 to August 9.

Below is a list of activities that kids can do on their own and even some that can be done at home.

After completing an activity, remember to log in the time on your Activity Tracker Sheet.

  • AGILITY LADDER

    Set up your own agility ladder by marking off squares in a line indoors with masking tape or with chalk on the driveway or sidewalk. Then let children determine their own activities and rules: Will they hop on one foot in each square, or alternate feet while skipping every other square? Will they hop into the first square on both feet, the second square on just their left foot, and so on? Kids love making up their own sequences. You’ll be amazed at how many different ways they can figure out to use a simple ladder drawn on the ground!

  • GET CREDIT FOR FUN CLASSES LIKE THIS TAE KWON DO
  • To combat increasing rates of childhood obesity in America, Healthy Lombard is sponsoring a running program called, Healthy Kids Running Series,  that provides a fun environment for kids that also builds self-esteem.

    HKRS is a national, community-based non-profit that provides a fun, inclusive five-week running series for ages 2-14, designed for kids to get active, feel accomplished, and lay the foundation for a healthy lifestyle.

    Because of Cvid29, this year’s series will be conducted as virtual runs. The advantage, in addition to the obvious one of staying safe distances from others, is that YOU can schedule your run at a time that is most convenient for your family!

    So, we encourage you to take this opportunity to run with your kids and have some good, healthy family fun.
