Every Kid Healthy Week
Every Kid Healthy™ Week is an annual observance created to celebrate school health and wellness achievements. It is recognized on the calendar of National Health Observances. Observed the last week of April each year, this special week shines a spotlight on the great efforts our school partners are doing to improve the health and wellness of their students and the link between nutrition, physical activity and learning – because healthy kids learn better! Everyone in the country can get involved and be a part of the celebration to help support sound nutrition, regular physical activity and health-promoting programs in schools. Here are some of our favorite Game On activities to celebrate Every Kid Healthy Week™ in the classroom, in the cafeteria, on the playground and school-wide.
Involve your parents, community members and local businesses as volunteers to help support your Every Kid Healthy™ Week celebrations. They can provide an extra helping hand or a needed, valuable skill set. Brainstorm ways to engage volunteers to help and support your efforts.
