Healthy and Happy Kids
The Healthy and Happy Kids Program selects one Midlands school per year to address the issues of healthy eating, fitness, dental hygiene, and literacy. Junior League of Columbia (JLC) volunteers host an event each quarter at the school for the parents and students, where families are fed a healthy dinner and participate in activities related to the evening's topic. Goals are established, and prizes are given to the families who complete their goal.
Healthy and Happy Kids is a proactive and interactive program that aims to create a true healthy lifestyle change in the family as a whole.
