We all know there’s a health and obesity crisis going on in America – especially in regions like the South. Sadly, today’s children are the ones being affected most. Zest Quest is a non-profit organization in South Carolina with a mission to change that.
Zest Quest‘s goal is to inspire children in the area to lead physically and emotionally healthier lives through the education and support of wellness coaches and mentors. The initiative is currently aligned with 15 schools in the south and combines a state-enforced curriculum that meets educational standards for traditional classes (i.e., English, math, science, history, etc.) while also teaching children the exercise and nutrition habits that promote lifetime wellness.
Zest Quest is currently working to expand its initiatives into more schools in South Carolina and beyond. With any luck, the mission will be a success.
