Educational budget cuts and standardized testing focus are diminishing physical activity and physical education in our nation’s school system. As a result, childhood obesity rates have grown and continue to do so in enormous proportions. Sedentary technology and unhealthy eating habits also play major roles by enabling us and promoting inactive lifestyles. Almost 1 of every 3 children are overweight or obese, which opens the door to diabetes, high blood pressure and other cancerous health related diseases that stem from lack of proper nutrition and exercise. Thus, Quality Wellness seeks to provide the missing resources through a stimulating and enriching environment; one that will sustain the interests of youth and produce young thinkers who are positive change-agents in their communities.
