|Childhood obesity is increasing at an alarming rate. Armed with this knowledge, and with its customers’ health in mind, Harris Teeter launched its yourwellness program in March of 2006. The program is designed to make it easier for shoppers to choose nutritional items for their families.
One instrumental tool for shoppers and their children is our FREE yourwellness for families program. The yourwellness for families guide outlines a reasonable and effective plan of action you can take to help optimize your children’s health and wellbeing, and it all starts with you. Your children look to you as role models, following your lead especially when it comes to health issues like eating well, exercise and stress management. When you begin the yourwellness program, your children will notice and will want to participate, too. They may even bring you new ideas for making the “family dining table” a place of optimal nourishment. Because the entire family is participating in the program, healthy habits can become a way of life for the entire family.

In addition to following a healthy diet, it is also important for children to be active. To encourage exercise, Harris Teeter donates to the YMCA and youth sports. Activities such as baseball, soccer and basketball help children get moving, burn calories and stay well.
