The Do Right! Kids Program is designed to address the childhood obesity epidemic through a family-centered nutrition and physical activity program. The objective of the Do Right! Kids program is to improve the health and well-being of disadvantaged, overweight or obese children and children at risk for obesity and becoming overweight. The program provides a 12-week curriculum that educates children and their families about the importance of eating health and getting physical activity. The instruction is hands-on and activity-based. The program has three components: In-School, After School, and Family and Community Nights. So far, 1,431 students have participated in the in-school and afterschool activities since the beginning of the Do Right! Kids Initiative.
