Childhood obesity has reached epidemic proportions in our country, as demonstrated by the report of the Centers for Disease Control, which indicates approximately 17% (or 12.5 million) of children and adolescents aged 2—19 years are obese. HEPD wants to help! At HEPD, we’re taking this epidemic seriously by addressing the ways that we can help parents and their children in our community. We’ve assembled a task force of managers and staff to educate and assist our community to improve health and lead healthier lifestyles. The program, called HEALTH

(Helping Everyone Achieve a Lifestyle That’s Healthy), will be multi-faceted and on-going. We have developed a publication, for parents HEALTHeKids that promotes health and wellness in children; particularly those facing weight control issues. Other initiatives may include speakers at mandatory pre-season parent meetings for youth sports.

LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT Happy New Year from your friends at the Hoffman Estates Park District. The new year is a great time to resolve to make steps toward a healthier lifestyle. How are your doing on your resolutions? Each of us, regardless of our current state of health and wellness, can take steps toward healthier habits. Whether it’s increasing activity, losing excess pounds, or getting more vegetables or calcium in our diets, at HEPD, we are continually offering opportunities for people of all ages to take steps toward healthy living. It’s part of our HEALTH initiative, which stands for Helping Everyone Achieve A Lifestyle That’s Healthy. Going forward, we’ll be introducing more classes and events that focus on healthy lifestyles as our part of our effort to help reduce the epidemic of obesity in our country. The classes and events we’ll plan can benefit everyone in our community. Here are just a few of the classes that can help you reach your health goals:

The governing body of the park district is comprised of seven elected commissioners who represent the recreational needs of their community for four year, unpaid terms. Park commissioners have the power to levy taxes within prescribed limits, establish or change park district policies, sign agreements, award contracts and possess all of the powers similar to those of a board of directors for a public corporation. Park commissioners work as a board to interpret the park and recreation needs of the community, formulate short and long term plans and inform the public of the purpose, worth and extent of the district’s services, parks and facilities.

Board Meetings are held monthly at 7:00P at Triphahn Center and Ice Arena. Recreation Committee — 2 nd Tuesday

Yoga can promote healing in your body as your stress level is reduced and you learn to interact differently with everyday stresses. It can also decrease your blood pressure, heart rate, and respiratory rate while giving you a renewed sense of energy and focus. Expect gentle stretching and moving exercises, which incorporate deep breathing and poses to strengthen and bring flexibility to your body. Bring a 1/4" yoga mat, block and towel to class. Dress comfortably. Mgr. Cuff

Use Tai Chi Ch'uan's slow, non-strenuous, fluid movements toward life-long health maintenance. This quiet, therapeutic, exercise sharpens and calms the mind, loosens and strengthens the body offering greater freedom and range of motion while improving balance, coordination, breathing, circulation and posture.

Grocery Store Tip To avoid impulse purchases and over spending at the grocery store, use the hand basket instead of the grocery cart when you’re heading to the store to pick up a few things. This way, when the basket gets too heavy, you’ll head to the check out and be less likely to buy impulsively.

Physical education encourages children to live active lifestyles and helps them build healthy habits that they will carry with them into adulthood. Physical activity is a great way to help children burn off their seemingly endless supply of energy. This is especially important for kinesthetic learners who need to move in order to learn. Our program focuses on helping children develop strong muscles, cardiovascular endurance and flexibility along with teamwork and self-confidence. Perfect opportunity for individuals being educated at home. Participants should wear athletic apparel and shoes to class each day. Mgr. Chesak TU,TH 10:30A-11:30A 4/2-5/9 $75 / $80 224321-A

The Skinny on Whole Grains Eating a variety of whole grains daily, like whole wheat bread and brown rice, may help you maintain a healthy weight and reduce your risk for heart disease. One way to find a product rich in whole grains is to make sure a whole grain is the first grain listed on a product ingredient list. For kids, the Center for Disease Control suggests parents set a good example by eating whole grains with meals or as snacks. Let children select and help prepare a whole grain side dish. Teach older children to read the ingredient list on cereals or snack food packages and choose those with whole grains at the top of the list. To learn more about whole grains and what constitutes a serving size, visit -- Amy Daum, Registered Dietitian, PSS&WC

Fruity Granola Yogurt Parfait

Did you know? Commercially available granola is often toasted with oil and honey, making it high in calories. So, it’s important to choose low-fat granola, when available.


½ cup granola, low-fat

Layer ingredients any which way you want in a glass, such as half of granola, yogurt, and fruit, then repeat. Eat with a long spoon.

½ cup fresh blueberries, raspberries, or sliced strawberries or bananas (use frozen fruit if fresh isn’t available)

Most Americans do not consume enough calcium, a mineral that is essential to bone health. For a quick and easy tip to increase your daily calcium intake, remember to include an eight ounce glass of skim milk or low-fat soy milk at meals. Choose low fat or fat free dairy for maximum calcium and minimal calories.

Try this delicious recipe:

* Fee listed is for the entire year.

¾ cup (6-oz container) vanilla or plain yogurt, low-fat

Are you getting enough calcium?

This is the perfect class for the toddler who is ready to go to the big school too! Children will learn socialization skills and early cognitive learning skills through songs, stories, crafts and free play. Gradual separation from a parent will help your child prepare for preschool. A parent/caregiver will attend school with the child from September thru December. After winter break, 15 minutes will be added to the class and the parent/caregiver will attend the first and last 15 minutes of each class. After spring break, the child will attend class without the parent/caregiver. Please note, when the parent/caregiver is not in the classroom, he/she must remain in the building as the teacher is not responsible for changing diapers. Children must be 21 months old in order to begin the class. Children may begin anytime during the school year while space is available. **Participants in the 2's Playschool class will receive priority registration for next year's 2014-2015 Preschool or Threeschool.

Led by certified Jelly Bean Coach Performers, our Jelly Bean Programs are designed to help children learn how to feel, think and act inside sports environments.

Losing Weight Safely Experts agree that it’s safe and healthy to lose about 1-2 pounds per week. You can do this by reducing the amount of calories you eat by 500 calories per day. For hidden calories, watch what you drink. Those convenient bottles of soda, juice and tea may contain more calories than you think. Read the labels and pay attention to the number of servings and the calories.

The Hockey Development Program encompasses three categories designed to take the new player from learning to stand up on skates to, over time, being able to play on a competitive team. We offer two days a week for a very competitive price believing that skating is one of the most difficult sport exercises to learn and master and needs frequent practice to really begin to enjoy and progress. However if you have to miss a day, no problem! The Curriculum is designed to enable students to progress at their own speed. It is always recommended to have a child try a public skate first to ensure they are ready to focus on the process of learning to skate.
