What Is Discover CATCH?

catch It’s much easier to create good health habits than it is to change bad ones.

CATCH, an acronym for Coordinated Approach to Childhood Health, is an educational program created by University of Texas School of Public Health in response to the rising obesity epidemic in our country. CATCH uses a combination of kid’s nutrition and fitness activities as tools to teach children how to lead healthy and active lives. Recently, the Jewish Community Center Association adopted Discover CATCH, an expansion of CATCH that allows children to explore physical activity and nutrition through Jewish values, instilling healthy habits in children and their families for wellness their way.

The PJCC has incorporated Discover CATCH in a multitude of youth programs including the PJCC Preschool, Camp Keff, Kids Fitness classes, the Grow Justice Garden and the Treehouse.

With childhood obesity on the rise in the U.S. it is more important than ever to teach our kids good habits for good health.
