Manhattan Beach, CA (PRWEB) February 05, 2013
In its continuing efforts to help tackle the obesity epidemic, SENSA® Products, LLC (SENSA®) today announced that it has partnered with After-School All-Stars (ASAS), a national non-profit organization providing after-school programs that inspire students to become more active, healthy and empowered.
Through this partnership, SENSA® and ASAS have joined together to implement “Healthy Eating Classes” for middle school children to teach them the importance of nutrition, proper portion control, and physical activity; provide them with the tools to grow their own vegetable gardens; teach them healthy recipes to cook with their families; and more! The classes will take place at 18 schools throughout Los Angeles, Hawaii and New York, reaching more than 5,000 students and parents.
“Most eating and exercise habits are formed during childhood, so it is important that students develop healthy habits from a young age. At SENSA®, we are dedicated to educating the public about proper nutrition and exercise as we strive to help tackle the obesity epidemic,” said Kristin Chadwick, President of SENSA®. “We are excited to partner with After-School All Stars, and we are confident that together, we can empower students to develop healthy habits that will last a lifetime.”
Founded by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger in 1992, ASAS fuels students’ individual passions by tying their interests to academics, enrichment activities and sports. ASAS also gives its students a safe-haven during the after-school hours when kids are most likely to be exposed to negative influences.
“At After-School All-Stars, our goal is to provide students with the opportunities they deserve and the skills they need to do well – in school and in life,” Ben Paul, President and CEO, After-School All-Stars said. “SENSA® is a natural partner for us, as they share our commitment to improving the health of America’s youth and encouraging them to succeed in life.”
