Ticats target child fitness
Health, nutrition program will reach thousands

Yasmine Angliss had the Ticats serve her breakfast and she can't wait to rub it in her dad's face.
"He’s a big fan. Too bad he couldn’t come – he had to work today,? the 11-year-old said with a grin.
The Grade 6 student was one of the nearly 60 kids who had three of the Ticats
pour them apple juice and cereal at the kickoff of a healthy lifestyle program
at St. Patrick’s Catholic Elementary School Monday.
The program, called BeFit, was created to inspire students to eat nutritious breakfasts and get active.
Ticats players will serve breakfast at 30 schools until May, and then visit 10 per month next school year.
They expect to reach 12,000 kids in the next year, said Shawn Burke, the team’s director of communications.
I am assuming there may be some sort of measureable goal-setting for the kids.
Can anybody help me on this?
