Brought to you by The GrassROOTS Community Foundation, “Daddy’s Little Girl Health Challenge” is dedicated to promoting healthy lifestyle and opportunities, particularly as it relates to reducing childhood obesity. Together, GrassROOTS and Fit Fathers see dads as champions for their daughters. Therefore, this Father’s Day and throughout the year we are asking teams of dads and daughters to participate at least one health activity (e.g., walking, biking, swimming, rollerblading, or making a healthy meal together, etc) at least once a week for one hour.
The Surgeon General encourages 60 minutes of physical activity for all children and has advised that we reduce our sugar intake. Of course dads are great health ambassadors for this message. Please visit www.grass-rootsfoundation.org and take the health challenge. Each month teams of dads and daughters will win a prize for their participation and be entered into a contest for a trip to Walt Disney. Moreover, on Sundays GrassROOTS will host a live chat with a child development specialist and a nutritionist at www.facebook.com/dlghealthchallenge. Dads and daughters will have a chance to share questions and receive the information they need to live healthier lives. When registering please identify yourself as a “Fit Fathers” participant of the DLG Health Challenge. Good luck!
