Join Demotte Library for ‘Catch- Coordinated Approach To Child Health’
Children in grades 3-8 along with their caregivers are invited to attend CATCH (Coordinated Approach to Child Health) outside at the DeMotte Library. CATCH will teach children about basic nutrition concepts like breakfast, fast food, smart drinks, snacks, bone health, and screen time. We will also discuss the pros and cons of different foods and drinks. There will also be fun games to incorporate physical activity.
This series of programs taught by the Purdue Extension Office will take place on the following Tuesdays at 4 p.m. — Oct. 6 and Oct. 20. Attendance at both sessions is preferred, but not required. Since this program will be outside, participants are encouraged to dress for the weather. Social distancing guidelines will be observed. Please register for each session online at www.myjcpl.org/events or by visiting or calling the DeMotte Library at (219) 987-2221.
