The Coalition for Activity and Nutrition to Defeat Obesity and Healthy Kids Club, both Poudre Valley Health System programs, are partnering with Colorado's Action for Healthy Kids to offer the first northern Colorado Regional Parent School Wellness Roundtable.

The Roundtable event will be held at the Windsor Recreation Center located at 250 11th St., Windsor, Colo. from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on January 25. Childcare is available for children ages 5-12 . Parents can register online:  www.ActionforHealthyKids.org/Colorado or call 970.495.7523 for more information.

The Roundtable will provide parents and community members from Poudre, Thompson, Windsor, and Greeley school districts the opportunity to learn more about school wellness initiatives to create a healthier school environment. Participants will also be able to network and share challenges and successes they have had impacting physical activity and nutrition in their homes and children's schools.

"Parents play a vital role in creating environments that support good health in our children. Whether we want to make changes in our homes, or at our children's schools, having resources for how to do it is so important," Poudre School District parent, Jodi Hansen.

CanDo and Healthy Kids Club have been working in northern Colorado schools for more than a decade to promote healthy eating and physical activity. Action for Healthy Kids is a national coalition focused on mobilizing parents and communities to influence schools around health and wellness for children and recognizing the link between health and academics.
