Action heroes wanted. The future of healthy, happy kids depends on you. Help us take 1 million actions for healthy kids by 2025.
Set a healthy back to school routine.
Parents, educators, and students are dealing with enormous stress as they face the start of a school year in a pandemic. Whether school is virtual, in person, or a hybrid model, one of the most helpful things you can do for kids is to work with them to create a daily or weekly routine of healthy behaviors they can practice, such as setting daily intentions, taking physical activity breaks, and more.
Did your child help come up with a routine? Let us know!
