DEDICATION

separator


As an active member of the South Orange County Childhood Obesity Prevention Task Force (through St. Joseph’s Health and Mission Hospital), F2BK is dedicated to providing relevant awareness education, stellar program curriculum and easily-accessible resources for the entire family unit. F2BK launched its first free community outreach programs in September 2010, working with under-served, at-risk youth to provide awareness and field programs that address modern societal symptoms; such as, childhood obesity, which affects more than 12 million children in the United States alone, and 70% of these obese children have at least one risk factor for cardiovascular disease.








Our Impact

Since our inception, we have been successful in documenting our impact, as well as the feedback from children and parents. In addition to quantifiable KPIs (key performance indicators) – such as, BMI (body mass index), muscular strength, endurance, flexibility, cardiovascular improvement and SEL (social/emotional learning) surveys – the data revealed a bigger and broader picture that we now use in conjunction with the above KPI’s to plot the future of F2BK.

About Us

Fit to be Kids, Inc. (F2BK) is a 501(c)(3) community outreach organization that provides prevention, awareness and advocacy education about childhood obesity, and the health risks that accompany this disease, to at-risk youth and their families – empowering them to live healthier, wholesome lives while promoting physical activity, nutrition education and social/emotional character development through experience-based enrichment programs that ultimately impact the overall well-being of our communities.

Our mission is to o empower at-risk youth and to educate their families through physical fitness, nutrition education and social-emotional character development experiences that impact the health and well-being of communities and the vision is to be a community resource that advocates and encourages the development of physical and cognitive skills necessary for youth to lead a balanced and wholesome life.

This is the gist of what we’ve learned…
Childhood obesity is merely a symptom of systemic designs, typically due to poverty, which deters youth from the outdoors (physical activity) and access to nutrition (fresh fruits and vegetables). We have also learned that experience-based learning is much more effective in long-term behavior change.

.. and this is what we’re doing about it:
We have created an experience-based learning environment where children can develop necessary social, emotional, cognitive and dexterous skills through specific physical activities and nutrition education that will empower them in leading a balanced and wholesome life.
