Kids moving more, eating better, making healthy choices!
Launched in Orange County in 2003, KID HEALTHY addresses the childhood obesity epidemic through exciting nutrition and fitness programs and campaigns that target low-income communities in Southern California.
KID HEALTHY is proud to have celebrated over eight years of working in schools, youth agencies, community organizations, and after school sites to combat the rising trend of childhood obesity in Southern California. To date, we've impacted over 500,000 students, parents, and teachers. Working in collaboration with 20 public and private non-profit agencies, KID HEALTHY has put into place activities aimed to encourage students, teachers, and families in Title I schools to make healthy food choices and increase their physical activities. The KID HEALTHY Nutrition Education Material and Activity Plan closely mirrors First Lady Michelle Obama's "Let's Move" Campaign.
"We applaud the First Lady for drawing attention to the issue of childhood obesity and for presenting sound approaches that are already working locally in Southern California," said KID HEALTHY's Executive Director, Jackie Teichmann. "Obesity is a national problem and we support her efforts to lead this national awareness campaign."
Both KID HEALTHY and the "Let's Move" Campaign support: 1) Offering parents the tools and information they need to make better decisions about their children's nutrition; 2) getting healthier foods in schools; 3) improving the accessibility and affordability of healthy foods; and 4) increasing opportunities for kids to play and move.
