RSG! Celebrates National Public Health Week

Ready Set, Gold! proudly supports National Public Health Week (April 3-9).

Did you know that nearly one in three kids in America are either overweight or obese and at risk of developing a chronic illness? That is an alarming statistic.

As Ready, Set, Gold! wraps up its 9th year, we want to remind everyone about the importance of nutrition and exercise.

The food we eat and the amount of exercise we incorporate into our daily lives affects more than just the size of our waistbands. There’s a direct link between poor nutrition and many of the leading causes of death such as heart disease, cancer, stroke and diabetes.

Healthy eating is important at any age, but the food on a young person’s plate can shape his or her health and growth for life.
