|NonStop for Parents|
Have you ever watched a healthy 3 or 4 year old for a day? Up and down the stairs. Chasing after animals. Playing with toys, socks, shoes, keys. Laughing. Crying. Jumping. Falling. They're constantly moving. They are nature's perpetual motion machines. They don't sit for hours in front of the television or computer. They don't have time. They're busy.
So what happens to these same kids 5 years later... 3 years later? We demand that they sit down and "be quiet." We put all kinds of electronic gadgetry in their rooms and encourage them to stay in there and "hold it down". Some of them can't play outside because of safety issues and what would they do out there anyway... the fun stuff is inside! We let them eat empty calorie foods because the media makes them "look" so delicious... and we're all just too busy.
All of this behavior has had a horrible result - kids are becoming sick from the result of childhood obesity.
In fact... 1 in 3 kids in this country are obese or overweight.
|Kids today are now faced with medical issues and diagnoses previously considered adult diseases - like Type II Diabetes, lung/respiratory problems, heart problems, high blood pressure and cholesterol, bone issues, self esteem issues and the list just goes on and on. If we do not do something about this disturbing trend this generation of kids will be the first to have a shorter life expectancy than their parents.|
|If we are going to reverse this trend then we all have to work together to teach kids how to make healthy lifestyle choices. That is where NonStop™ comes in! Everyone knows that kids don't like being told what to do - NonStop rewards kids for making healthy lifestyle choices and let's them choose what activities best suit their personality and interests. NonStop teaches kids about setting personal goals, getting more daily activity, eating more fruits and vegetables, decreasing screen time and making healthier choices at fast food restaurants - and the best part is they get points for their good choices.
At the end of each 6-week session, kids that reach 15,000 points or more get rewarded! Rewards vary based on the type of program you are signed up through – Sponsored or Individual. Rewards for both programs are provided by you the parent! When you sign your child(ren) up for NonStop you will be asked to sign a contract with your child(ren) promising them something specific for reaching a point threshold or completing the 6 week program. It is up to you! If you are signed up through a Program Sponsor they might have additional drawings or individual prizes based on point threshholds like Frisbee's, jump ropes, balls, bats - anything to do with a healthy lifestyle.
