Teach Your Kid to Have Fun and Be Healthy with FREE Activities!

HEALTHY ADVENTURES AWAIT WITH SHAPE YOUR FUTUREhttps://www.kdnovelties.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/1-2.jpg

With the start of the busy school season, Oklahomans are encouraged to keep healthy living top of mind with Healthy Adventures from the Tobacco Settlement Endowment Trust (TSET) and Shape Your Future.

Shape Your Future Healthy Adventures consist of free monthly themes that include interactive and family friendly recipes, suggestions for fun physical activity, games and more. By providing a variety of themes throughout the school year, Oklahomans can choose to complete the Healthy Adventure series in its entirety, or pick and choose months to participate based on theme, recipe or activity. Month-long themes include topics such as Pirate, Space, Super Hero and Cowboy.

“At our core, Shape Your Future aims to improve the overall health of Oklahomans by encouraging people to eat better, move more and be tobacco free,” said Alyson Short, Lead Project Director for the Healthy Living Program of Volunteers for Youth. “The Healthy Adventure series puts those values into play, helping remind families that even small steps can add up to become healthier.”

The activities for each themed month are easy-to-follow, and only require items that are frequently found at home. Recipes, such as Constellation Blueberries, Big Top Breakfast Quesadillas, Taquito Roundups and Teddy Toast are both easy-to-follow and kid-friendly.

“As a busy mom of two, I’m always looking for fun, affordable activities to keep my children busy,” said Short. “The Shape Your Future Healthy Adventure series is perfect for our family because the activities appeal to both of my kids, despite their differences in age. The themes provide the perfect opportunity to spark creativity and keep my kids active.”

This fall, adventure awaits! Details, activities and more for each theme can be found at https://shapeyourfutureok.com/shape-future-summer-adventures/.

Shape Your Future (SYF) is a community health education intervention that encourages Oklahomans to eat better, move more and be tobacco free. SYF was developed in 2011 by the Tobacco Settlement Endowment Trust (TSET) and the Oklahoma State Department of Health (OSDH) to provide simple messaging for moms and influencers in the lives of children to eat more fruits and vegetables and to be more physically active to improve overall health. SYF strives to educate parents, teachers, caregivers and all Oklahomans on how to make the healthy choice, the easy choice.
