Are you First Choice Fit®?
Football star Marcus Lattimore has teamed up with First Choice to encourage kids to be First Choice Fit.
Watch a video below of Marcus Lattimore and Brooke Brittain, a registered dietitian with the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control’s SNAP-Ed Program, cooking up Chinese chicken and veggies. You can find more great cooking and exercise videos on our YouTube channel.
Being First Choice Fit means eating right, being active, and seeing your doctor — even if you haven't been sick. Getting your well visit each year is an important part of being First Choice Fit.

Facts about well visits
Well-child visits are an important part of staying First Choice Fit. Well visits are checkups that allow the primary care provider (PCP) to monitor your child's growth and catch any health problems early. The PCP may also give vision and hearing exams or any needed shots.

Kids need well-visit checkups from infants to young adults, up to age 21. Make sure your child has well visits at these ages:
- From birth to age 2: 3 – 5 days, 1 month, 2 months, 4 months, 6 months, 9 months, 12 months, 15 months, 18 months, 24 months, and 30 months.
- From age 3 through age 21: every year.
Well visits are available at no cost for children 18 and younger at their PCP. Learn more about well-child visits, or call your child's PCP office to make an appointment today.
