  9. KidShape is a family based weight management program developed to address the epidemic of childhood obesity and help kids that are struggling with weight issues. The 9 week program is geared towards families with a 6-14 year old child, who is overweight, to help teach better nutrition, help with self-esteem and get them moving with increased activity. If you are interested in this program contact Memorial Hospital or your health care provider, I have read a lot of positive feedback on the program from parents who attended this program in Harrisburg!
  10. Finally check out your townships website for fall sports that should be starting soon. Also the YMCA, YWCA and Jewish Community Center have their fall lineups available as well. The JCC also posted two specific classes for the fall in the newspaper.
  • Kids Gym Jam, which is held from 6:15pm-7pm Tuesday's for kids 1-4 years old (great sibling class). It features age appropriate gym equipment and props of all kids to develop large muscle skills.
  • Musical Me, which is held from 5:30pm-6:15pm Thursday's for children 1-4 years old. This class is intended to introduce your child to elements of music, rhythms and sounds.
