One of the main features of Heritage At Play is its educational kit. Given that as time goes on, increasingly more Americans are falling into the obesity category (which brings with it a whole slew of other problems), we have made it our mission to make fitness fun, and a strong composition, captivating. In other words, rather than kids growing up feeling like getting in shape is a chore, by the time they reach adulthood, it will just be a way of life, and even enjoyable.
The problem today is that so many American adults are obese and out of shape (according to data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, 2009–2010), more than 2 out of 3 Americans are considered to be overweight or obese. That figure is appalling and only seems to be getting worse. Losing weight (and keeping it off) has been proven so difficult that the only way to really combat this problem is to not become overweight in the first place; i.e. to be fit, strong and have a healthy BMI during childhood.
Thus with our wellness educational kit, we focus on parents, siblings, teachers and anyone the child has a connection with to promote fitness, movement, wellness and nutritional eating as a normal part of life.
