A National Movement - Entrenching Healthy Habits in our Youth

The school year is just around the corner and The 60 Minute Kids Club has expanded its FREE program from BC and ON to reach across Canada! There is limited space for each province - so inquire early by visiting

The healthy challenges are in place for parents and youth to learn and be empowered to make healthy choices right from the start, giving our future generation the ultimate boost in life - being healthy! 

31.5% of Canadian children are overweight or obese - childhood obesity is a National crisis. Excess weight in childhood is linked to Type 2 Diabetes, Hypertension, poor emotional health and diminished social well-being. 

The 60 MKC allows youth to track their progress online and take part with their peers at school and in their community. Five healthy behaviours that include nutrition, sleep, screen time, activity and hydration embody an overall healthy well being for youth and parents. 

To date, the 60 Minute Kids Club has reached over 42,000 students in 155 schools, across 8 districts in BC and Ontario - while maintaining our average participation rate of 62%! 

The students are part of a fun engaging healthy challenge with their peers and are supported by their school, their caregivers and the 60 MKC team!
