Did you know...?
Over 40% of children in Rhode Island are over weight. The medical effects of this are staggering as well as the many negative social and emotional effects.
As a way to address this problem South County Food, Fitness and Fun was developed 3 years ago in conjunction with the Department of Nutrition and Food Sciences at the University of Rhode Island, Busy Bodies Studio, LLC and a group of very committed community members and pediatricians.
SCFFF is an ongoing program for children between the ages of 7-11 who are over weight. It combines a fitness and nutritional counseling program for the child and parent(s) aimed at improving their diets and fitness in a fun and friendly environment. We have successfully completed over two years of classes and the results have been very positive. The program serves as referral source for all local and Coastal Medical pediatricians and family physicians.
We are soliciting local support for this program. We are fortunate this year that Coastal Medical decided to support our efforts, but need your help to keep going.
