After-School Programs

Children across Wood County are giving their bodies and taste buds a workout thanks to Fit-tastic – an after-school program that emphasizes nutrition and physical activity like yoga, kickball, nature walks, soccer, and circuit training. The program helps kids get excited about fitness and reach the recommended 60 minutes of physical activity every day. In addition to the fitness component, kids are sampling fresh produce like mango, kiwi, jicama, and snap peas, and are learning how to help out during meal time at home.

Whether you are a school staff member who would like to offer Fit-tastic for your students, or a parent or community member who would like to volunteer and support these programs, contact the Wood County Health Department, at 715.421.8911 or for more information or a free copy of the Fit-tastic curriculum.
