Have you heard about the Amherst Pediatrics Summer Health Challenge? The Challenge lasts all summer: June 26th-August 25th and is a fun way for you and your family to make healthy eating choices and get more exercise. Kids of all ages are welcome to join and they do not have to be patients of ours in order to sign up!

Using the SuperTracker website, you earn points by participating in some type of physical activity or healthy eating. All members who are entering their activities into their SuperTracker profile will be entered into a weekly raffle. Prizes will be awarded to participants with the most points at the end of the summer as well.

Physical activity points can be earned by doing lots of different things like walking, running, dancing, playing a sport, mowing the lawn, etc. You can earn points by making sure to eat fruits, vegetables, and other healthy choices throughout the day. Create a profile on the SuperTracker website: www.supertracker.usda.gov and join the Amherst Pediatrics Summer Health Challenge Group by using activation code: GEYI-MHAD

So join us in the Amherst Pediatrics Summer Health Challenge - have fun, get fit, and earn a prize!

Calling the office may present a further delay in response times.
