Best Practices for Healthy Eating & Physical Activity at Program Sites

12:45-1:45 Workshop

After School Programming Track:

Best Practices for Healthy Eating & Physical Activity at Program Sites
In April of 2011, a coalition of leading national after-school organizations introduced the Standards for Healthy Eating and Physical Activity in Out-of-School Time Programs. Since creating the ASPIRE after-school program in 1998, Meeting Waters YMCA program director Susan Fortier has been leading after-school programs up and down the Valley that meet and exceed these standards. This workshop will introduce the guidelines, ways Meeting Waters Y has been practicing them, and an assessment and planning tool that the Y’s Healthy Communities Coalition can bring to your after-school organization to help you identify strengths and opportunities for improving supports for healthy eating and physical activity. Share your thoughts, ideas and experiences in this interactive workshop.

Presenters include:

Susan Fortier, Program Director, Meeting Waters YMCA
