About fit

fit is a health activation program from Sanford Health, developed in collaboration with WebMD to empower children and families to do the simple things each day that make healthy lifestyle choices a habit.

The fit system of resources and programs include school programs, childcare training, mobile apps, and websites showcasing fun, interesting and useful content.

fit's programs and resources build the awareness that RECHARGE and MOOD influence FOOD and MOVE choices, then activate healthy lifestyle choices.


  • MOOD: feelings and attitudes
  • RECHARGE: sleep and relaxation


  • FOOD: what and how much you eat
  • MOVE: exercise, play, and physical activity
Being fit is not just about what you eat and drink or how much you move. Being fit is about having the right mindset and enough energy to be able to choose healthy foods and to be active.
