Empowering youth to eat right is a generation-changing, life-enhancing program goal, and Triple Play’s nutrition component, called Healthy Habits, covers the power of choice, calories, vitamins and minerals, the food pyramid and appropriate portion size.
Healthy Habits is the “Mind” component of Triple Play, which emphasizes eating smart and maintaining physical fitness to improve the overall well-being of Club members. The Healthy Habits program is designed to:
- Teach young people about the benefits of healthy habits such as eating right and being physically active;
- Equip young people with skills to adopt healthier habits by participating in fun and engaging learning activities both at the Club and at home; and
- Encourage young people to take small steps toward positive behavior change.
