MECKids is the internet’s largest fitness and health community that’s just for kids and  teens. Our mission is to help students of all ages take control of their own fitness and health choices, build healthy habits, and become a part of a welcoming and safe online community.

Our Focus

The focus at MECKids is threefold:

Education

There is a glaring need for proper children’s education in nutrition and fitness. MECKids aims to fix that; no more will you hear “Oh, he’s a growing boy, he can eat junk food all day!” We educate students and their parents so that they can make smarter, healthier decisions that will serve them well into adulthood and beyond.

Motivation

Living in a healthy way isn’t always easy; there’s some level of mindfulness and discipline involved. MECKids gives students a single, convenient place where they can keep track of all of their fitness efforts and get instant feedback. We also encourage group activities and public commitment to goals to help kids stay motivated.

Connection

MECKids is a safe place where kids and teens can get together and make new friends without having to worry about cyber-bullying, online predators, or adult content. We work hard to make sure that our kids are learning how to be respectful, responsible users of social media – a skill that the 21st century youth can’t do without. We make sure that parents and teachers always have an opportunity to get involved with every stage of the process.
