SIMONE KIDSTART PREVENTION PROGRAM (originally called HEALTHY START)
Healthy Start Princeton Packet Mar 23, 1988
Lawrenceville, NJ (Dr Simone) – The Simone KidStart Prevention ProgramTM (originally called HEALTHY START) was first started in 1983 by Charles B. Simone, M.D. It is described as the only prevention program in the country. Prevention of cancer, cardiovascular disease and other chronic illnesses is feasible, economical, and makes a lot of sense.
The key to prevention is to teach our children early in life about a healthy lifestyle. Prevention with simple changes in lifestyle is the key to America’s soaring health care costs and soaring rates of cancer, cardiovascular disease, obesity, diabetes, etc. One of every two people in the United States develop cancer. The National Academy of Sciences indicates that 60% of women’s cancers and 40% of men’s cancers and 80% of cardiovascular diseases are related to nutritional factors alone.
The Simone KidStart Prevention Program is designed to teach children about healthful lifestyles early in life. The Program consists of planned lunches, newsletters sent home, assemblies to instruct about the “good” and “bad” foods as well as other lifestyle factors.
1) Six planned lunches as was done in 1988 at Ben Franklin Elementary School, Lawrenceville, NJ
2) Newsletters sent home prior to each lunch explaining what was eaten and why

Exercise and Relaxation
Dr. Simone intends that a healthy lifestyle will become permanent for the children involved in the Simone KidStart Prevention Program and also their parents. Based on a wealth of medical information, Dr Simone expects to see a decrease in the risk and incidence of cancer, cardiovascular disease and other chronic illnesses for those who adhere to this Ten Point Plan
