What is C.A.T.C.H.????

C.A.T.C.H. is our healthy choices initiative at Kids’ Korner.  C.A.T.C.H. which stands for Coordinated Approach To Children’s Health strives to educate children on good choices when it comes to exercising, eating healthy, and staying away from tobacco and drugs.  Through C.A.T.C.H. we learn to categorize foods as “Whoa!” (Foods you should rarely or never eat), “Slow!” (Foods that should be eaten only once in a while), or “Go!” (Foods that are good any time, all the time).  We also learn that it is good to have 30 minutes of moderate cardio-vascular exercise daily.  Two hours of skating is PERFECT for our C.A.T.C.H. Family Fun Night!!!

Hope to see you there!
