If you knew there was a healthier way to feed your children and family would you do it? I’ve recently learned some life changing information that I have to share. Information from an organization by the name of Kids WellCare based out of Frisco, Texas.
Kids WellCare is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the health of kids by creating health and nutrition education programs for kids and families. When asked about the purpose of the organization President and Executive Director of Kids WellCare, Joy Stephens replied, “the purpose of the organization is to empower parents by giving them the information they need to make informed decisions about their child’s health. The former surgeon general predicts that if current trends continue this generation of children will be the first to have a shorter life expectancy than their parents. For the sake of our children, it’s time for a change.” As a mother of a child who has had severe eczema since she was born, this program immediately sparked an interest. As a parent, I have always wanted what was best for my children and I’ve come to learn that unfortunately, no matter how good the doctors are, they aren’t always going to tell you what’s best for you and your family. Connect with Kids WellCare to learn more about how you can take matters into your own hands and do what is best for not only your children, but your family as a whole.
Kids WellCare offers three core programs:
- Kids WellCare Healthy Weight Program: designed to help address childhood obesity
- Kids WellCare Nutrition Boot Camp designed to help parents navigate the grocery store by teaching them how to read labels, addressing/explaining the latest food related issues (organics, GMOs, gluten, etc.)
- Kids WellCare Kid’s Health University (KHU): KHU will launch in 2015, but this program is for kids. It will include a number of entertaining age appropriate “courses” to help teach kids about health and nutrition.
Program enrollment is available online. All programs are available FREE of charge. All they ask is that for those who can afford it to make a donation.
***Enrollment is now open for the September 25th Nutrition Boot Camp***

“So many of the “new childhood epidemics” like obesity, seasonal allergies, digestive issues, eczema, even behavior issues such as ADHD can be managed through nutrition. Over eighty percent (80%) of our immune system resides in our digestive track… you would be amazed at how small dietary changes can make a huge difference in our overall health.” Joy Stephens – President & Executive Director Kids WellCare
As the saying goes, knowledge is power. The more you know about how to take better care of your family, the healthier your family will be. Get involved with Kids WellCare and change your child’s life forever.
