The Child Obesity Movement for the Latin Community
“Move with Nohelia” is the voice for families within the Latin communities bringing awareness to the child obesity epidemic.
Through education with fun "Exercises For Children" and "Nutrition For Families," the program focuses on giving Hispanic children and their parents the power and tools to fight this disease.
According to the Center for Disease Control, approximately 12.5 million children aged 2—19 years are obese. Since 1980, an obesity rate among children and adolescents has almost tripled. Hispanic children are significantly more likely to be obese than non-Hispanics. Nohelia inspires children to transform their lives by transforming their health. Our children are the future and they deserve the best.
