Preparing young children to make healthy lifestyle choices

Sponsored by HMAA

Diabetes in children is becoming more common among Hawaii’s keiki. Today, HI Now host Kanoe Gibson spoke with Dr. Melanie L. Shim to learn more about Project Power, a program with the American Diabetes Association that gets kids moving and eating healthy.

Project Power is a free, at-home program that brings all the fun and excitement of an afterschool experience right to you and your family. Kids ages 5–12 will make new friends and participate in age-appropriate physical activity challenges and nutrition education so they’re prepared to make healthy lifestyle choices. The program starts with a special Project Power box and activity journal delivered right to your door.

There are multiple sessions available for Project Power. To register, visit To learn more about some of the ways the American Diabetes Association is making an impact in the lives of millions, visit or follow on Facebook @AmericanDiabetesAssociation and Instagram: @AmDiabetesAssn.
