WHO WE ARE:
The Mission of Healthy Lombard is to address the epidemic of Pediatric Obesity through Awareness, Activities, and Achievement. WE DO THIS BY:
- Providing free-of-charge activities for youth
- Promoting a healthier lifestyle for everyone through the information shared on our website
- Providing a platform for community networking and collaboration through our quarterly partner meetings
WHY FLAT APPLE:
With that mission in mind, Healthy Lombard developed the Flat Apple Fitness Program to motivate kids to stay active and positive during the summer months outside of school. The 2021 program runs June 13- July 31, 2021. The program allows participants to earn tickets for eligibility to win a variety of prizes at the end of the summer. Prize winners are typically contacted in September. (BTW, the program is called “Flat Apple” because that is what our logo looks like!)
This year, we have added some new features like “Mindfulness Mondays” to promote Social-Emotional Learning (SEL). In addition to earning tickets for healthy selfies and healthy videos, kids can complete a BINGO Sheet and/or try a recipe to earn extra participation tickets each week. We have also added, “Wellness Wednesdays” to encourage physical activity and “Foodie Fridays” to promote healthy eating and cooking! All three components will be highlighted in a weekly newsletter.
