NSTEP Eat Walk Live, Alberta- Calgary
NSTEP Eat Walk Live is a school based program in which all classrooms, teachers, administrators and parents of a school are involved to fulfill a vision—to create a wave of health through students and their families into the community. NSTEP has successfully run programs for over four years.
NSTEP Eat Walk Live takes one school year to complete and will primarily be focused in K-6 schools in Calgary, Airdrie and Didsbury. With a grant from GoodLife Kids Foundation and the support of the Calgary Catholic School district, the schools are able to access this program free of cost.
Over 3145 children will be influenced by this initiative that strives to make healthy choices for food and activity part of the school culture and an everyday experience, giving children the opportunity for real lifestyle change.
GoodLife Kids Foundation is proud to support this program in two new provinces for 2012-2013.
