Get Moving-Get Healthy NJ with FCHS. FCHS invites groups, clubs, agencies and organizations to partner with us to help New Jersey Families "Get Moving, Get Healthy." We can work with you on a variety of nutrition, health and wellness topics, including these popular initiatives. Contact us today to bring these topics to your group:

  • Add Color to Your Plate...And Move More – Learn how physical activity, combined with eating more colorful fruits and vegetables, whole grains and beans are vital to improving health and preventing diseases like diabetes, certain cancers and heart disease.
  • Building Your Family Health History: An Important Legacy – A family's medical history provides an overview of its predisposition for conditions like diabetes, cardiovascular disease and certain cancers. Learn how to collect family medical information; conduct an assessment of hereditary risk factors; and develop a personalized health plan to reduce the onset of chronic health conditions.
  • Lighten Up the Fat – Learn the role that good fats play in the diet and how to minimize the other fats to maintain health and reduce the risk of disease.
  • Living Well: It's A Family Affair – Learn ways that families can work together to improve overall wellness, with tips for healthier eating and strategies to incorporate physical activity into daily life.
  • Supersize America – Supersize America helps participants understand why large portions and a lack of physical activity are both major problems for most Americans. A series of quizzes on portion sizes, household activity and calories burned makes this program fun and self-motivating.
