by Montanez, Yolanda, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2010, 47; 1486662
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to create a dynamic program, to explore potential funding source, and write a grant to fund education, groups, and individual services for adolescents to address healthy eating and an active lifestyle. A thorough literature review was conducted in order to investigate healthy eating patterns, heath risks and ramifications, barriers to an active lifestyle and programs that have been successful in the past among adolescents.

This proposed program seeks to provide healthy eating and active lifestyle education to adolescents within the city of Pasadena and surrounding area. The potential funding source was the Pasadena Unified School District Mental Health Services Program who works with children, adolescents and families within the community.

The intent of the program is to provide specialized services to low to mid income adolescents about healthy eating, physical activity, and health risks and ramifications.
