Learn Healthier Habits for Life

Habits are hard to change. Children who struggle with obesity early in life are more likely to continue to struggle with it into adulthood and are at higher risk for diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. Obesity can also affect a child's social and emotional well-being, contribute to poor academic performance, and result in a lower quality of life. Incorporating healthier habits now, along with family members, provides accountability, a shared sense of purpose, and will help set up young people for more success down the road.

The ACT! program helps families actively change together by practicing healthier habits as a team. Developed in partnership with providers and professionals at Seattle Children’s Hospital, the program includes one 60-minute session per week for 12 weeks. During each session, kids ages 8-14 and their parents/guardians participate in fun and engaging physical activities, learn about nutrition through hands-on cooking, and meet with other families in the program.

"My son Max (10 yrs old) and I can't say enough about ACT! We as a family have seen the benefits of the ACT Program. It has really shaped the way we, as a family approach our health and everyday living. The support and knowledge that the instructors have really make it an enjoyable time for all of us to come together. My husband and I are truly grateful for this program." - The Yin Family
