Students at ACPC Experience the L.E.A.P. Program

By Laura Marcum

Preschool and Kindergarteners at ACPC recently had special lessons pertaining to the L.E.A.P. program. L.E.A.P. incorporates reading and literacy with eating and physical activity for a healthy lifestyle.

The University of Kentucky Cooperative Extension Program launched this program with preschool back in 2004 and has expanded it up to 3rd grade. The program is designed to help children learn healthy behaviors at a very young age. Research studies indicate that children as young as two are eating a high-fat, low-fiber diet and that less than 20% of school children eat the recommended servings of fruits and vegetables. LEAP is targeted to improving these statistics.
