Fit Kids = Happy Kids
This flip chart contains client information on one side and on the other side educators will find tips for "starting the conversation" about healthy weight. The flip charts (in either English or Spanish) are designed to reinforce positive eating, activity and TV behaviors, and answer parents' questions about how they can help their children develop health habits. They are available in an 8/12" x 11" for individual counseling and a 16" x 20" size for group presentations. To reinforce the messages, the tool kit also includes Jump for Joy, a children's physical activity and nutrition book, and a poster.
