KidsFit and ShopRite Partnership
RWJBarnabas Health and ShopRite are proud to bring its communities this
award-winning program designed just for kids and those who love them – KidsFit!
KidsFit is a free, six-week session designed to empower children, ages
7 – 10, to make healthy choices in the kitchen and beyond. All classes
are held at ShopRite stores on a rolling schedule during the school year.
Working as a team with Registered ShopRite Dietitians, kids will create
simple, tasty and healthy meals and snacks. Each interactive, hands-on
lesson will feature ShopRite’s Super Food Heroes and showcase the
nutritional benefits of a different food group. Culinary goodies and activity
take-aways will be given to each child at the end of every class, and
prizes will be awarded to those with perfect attendance.

KidsFit originated at Newark Beth Israel Medical and Children’s Hospital
of New Jersey (NBIMC and CHoNJ) in Newark. It was developed by the facility’s
Registered Dietitians, who were determined to take a proactive approach
in helping to address the epidemic of childhood obesity. Taking preventative
action to the problem, KidsFit is now in key schools in the greater Newark
area, teaching children, families and teachers how to make better choices.
