Have we forgotten the Four Basic Food Groups? Nowadays, high fat and calories snacks are categorized in the “other” food group. Every day, nearly one-third of U.S. teenage girls eat fast food, and 15% are seriously overweight. Type 2 Diabetes (insulin resistance) has doubled due to poor eating habits. The C.A.M.P.’s Nutrition Program's primary focus brings back awareness of balanced eating, making healthier choices, and getting the body moving. These factors can decrease chronic diseases and create healthier lifestyles. Fitness means being in good physical condition - not skinny; C.A.M.P places emphatic attention towards encouraging physical condition, appreciating the self-esteem facet valued by teenage girls. Physical activity, along with proper nutrition, is beneficial to teens of all backgrounds and abilities. The efforts made by the Nutrition Program are geared to enlighten improper habits as well as healthy lifestyle options.
