StarFit Kids, a local non-profit, was founded in 2009 as a response to the alarming rise in childhood obesity. Lelia Davis, RN, President, and Sabra Zirkle, RD, Vice President, have created an interactive nutrition and fitness program for children in the community. The mission of StarFit Kids is to promote lifelong healthy eating habits and everyday fitness.
By offering accurate and current nutrition and fitness education, the StarFit Kids program exposes children to examples of how to make healthy choices and live a healthy lifestyle. Through mastery of these nutrition education skills, the students increase their knowledge of important nutrition principals to improve their overall health and nutrition status, as well as their self-esteem and fitness level.
