Healthy U Program
Encouraging Healthy Habits
A leader in childhood obesity prevention, the Y is committed to keeping kids active, especially during critical after school hours.
Through a partnership with The Horizon Foundation for New Jersey, the Healthy U health & physical activity initiative is incorporated in all Community YMCA Preschool and After School programs for youth.
Healthy U is designed to combat childhood obesity by instituting behavioral changes in children using a multi-pronged approach that includes nutrition education, increased physical activity and a family focus.
