Launched by Beach Cities Health District (BCHD) in 2007, LiveWell Kids is a comprehensive school well-being program developed specifically for elementary school students (K-5). The program was originally created in response to a high rate of obesity at the time – 20 percent in 2007 – among Redondo Beach elementary school students. Today, due to the partnership between Beach Cities Health District and Redondo Beach Unified School District, the obesity rate has fallen to just 6.4% while state and national averages continue to rise.
