Mind, Exercise, Nutrition… Do it!

Mind, Exercise, Nutrition…Do it! (M.E.N.D.) is a free lifestyle program designed to help families learn about healthy food choices and physical activity in order to reach and maintain a healthy weight.

M.E.N.D. is designed for children ages 6 to 13 years and parents and siblings are encouraged to participate. The program takes place over the course of 10 weeks with families meeting twice a week for two hours. These sessions include fun exercise activities.

During the program participants learn:

  • How to cook healthy and tasty food on a budget
  • What are the right portion sizes for their family
  • How much fat and sugar is in our food
  • And much, much more!

Participants receive a free t-shirt, water bottle, bag, and free handouts full of tips for the whole family.
