Did you know Anorexia is the 3rd most common chronic illness among adolescents? That’s why the Something for Kelly Foundation is taking a different approach to the problem by empowering children ages 6-12 to take control of their predisposition to eating disorders.
The non-profit organization offers programs that teach children where food comes from and how to grow their own food. Additional education series explore the choices we can make in response to the messages conveyed in the media. Their programs aren’t just for kids. Parenting workshops are tailored for guidance in recognizing eating disorder behavior, including how to communicate with children to steer them in the right direction. Check out somethingforkelly.org to learn how to add these programs to your local elementary schools.
