The purpose of this project was to develop a grant proposal to fund a 12-week program to enhance health awareness and promote living a healthier lifestyle for foster youth or recently emancipated foster youth in Mendocino County. The literature review describes the risk factors of obesity and how ethnicity and socioeconomic status contribute to the obesity epidemic. The proposed program was designed to encourage these adolescents to enjoy an active and healthy lifestyle. The main goal of the program is to educate foster youth about the health risks that are related to obesity and leading a sedentary lifestyle. The main goal will be obtained by having youth learn how to read food labels, make healthy food choices while grocery shopping, create meal plans that include the daily recommended allowances for vitamins and minerals, write out grocery lists, and develop exercise routines.
