Welcome to the Fit Kids Healthy Kids Safe at Home webpage. If you’re a parent or guardian of a child between the ages of 2 – 12 we’ve compiled a list of fun, active resources and games you can do from the comfort of your home with minimal or no equipment that will help keep your child physically active.

Thank you to Doctors Manitoba for their support of the program.
