PS 115 in Floral Park, NY

Ironwill Kids Food Education Program - PS 115

This Fall PS 115 in floral Park will be participating in the Ironwill Kids Powerup Program to learn about the importance of healthy nutritious meals.

The Ironwill Kids PowerUp! program is a fun, interactive nutrition experience designed to get kids excited about food and the role it plays in a healthy lifestyle. Based on research and behavior change theory, PowerUp! gives students the knowledge and skills necessary to make healthy food choices. Created especially for fifth, sixth and seventh graders, the program aligns with national and state standards and incorporates disciplines like English language arts, math, science and social studies. It also aligns with many of the common core state standards, which recognize that both content and skills are important.

Written in a playful way that's designed to engage students, the course is unique in its approach. The information is put in the hands of three fictional characters. Research has demonstrated that role playing is an effective means of learning, so each class the students take turns playing these characters. We call it, “Hollywood meets Health Education.” There's Will, a young teenager and natural born leader who's the role model for healthy living. Shareese is a precocious young girl who loves science and is only too happy to explain anything science-related. Then there's Zack, who's earned the nickname “Zack Attack” because whenever there's food around he attacks it like a hungry beast. He's our guide for foods that should be eaten in moderation.

Chrysler Elementary in Detroit, MI

Danialle Karmanos’ Work It Out Program: Chrysler Elementary

Chrysler Elementary will be participating in the Work it out Program designed to provide nutrition and yoga classes to 500 Children in Detroit this fall.

About the Program:

The mission of Danialle Karmanos’ Work It Out in partnership with the DMC Children’s Hospital of Michigan (DKWIO) is to promote optimum health in mind, body and spirit through a comprehensive yoga-based approach that reduces anxiety, prevents childhood obesity and increases self-esteem. Founded in 2005, DKWIO is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization that delivers quality programming to give children the tools to make healthy choices.

To achieve its mission, DKWIO reaches hundreds of kids each year through a 10-week yoga and nutrition program offered in elementary schools in the fall and winter. A six-week summer program is also offered for elementary-age children in schools and community centers.

The foundation of a healthy body begins with understanding what food makes the body strong, energized and fit. DKWIO incorporates nutritional education into each session.

For children to get started on a healthy lifestyle, they need to exercise every day. Yoga benefits both the body and the mind—it’s a physically empowering practice and calms a child’s otherwise busy world.

DKWIO employs a holistic and yoga-based model based on proven, structured tools—such as the program’s unique 1-hour formula—that maximize the organization’s impact and reach. This straightforward, repeatable formula increases the positive impact on children who take part in the program.

1 Hour Formula

  • Introduction – 10 Minutes
  • Nutrition – 5 Minutes
  • Activity (Yoga Practice) – 30 Minutes
  • Relaxation – 10 Minutes
  • Recap and Resources – 5 Minutes

In the U.S. alone, more than 2.3 million children suffer from childhood obesity. This problem threatens the health of our kids, our families and our nation. Through our yoga-centric approach and our unique system for equipping kids to make healthy choices, DKWIO is making a difference for thousands of children.
