Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and safety advisory for our youth and families, The Youth Connection will be launching our I2D2 Fit "N" Fun Family Clubs program virtually! Funded by Detroit Wayne Integrated Health Network (DWIHN), This program will be held via Zoom once a week for six (6) weeks and is an effort to (I2) Increase fruits and vegetables and increase physical activity and (D2) decrease sugary drinks and decrease screen time (TV, computer, video games, etc.). Topics discussed in the sessions will include fruit and vegetable serving sizes, the rainbow of nutrients, food pyramids, physical activity, knowledge of how to stop and rethink YOUR drink, and alternatives to screen time such as board games, outdoor games and much more! Weekly participation is asked for you and your family to WIN incentives throughout the program!
