Every Kid Healthy Week (April 25-29, 2022)
Every Kid Healthy Week: What is it?
Every Kid Healthy™ Week is an annual observance created in 2013 to celebrate school health and wellness achievements. Recognized on the calendar of National Health Observances and observed the last full week of April each year, each day of the week shines a spotlight on the great actions schools and families are taking to improve the health and wellness of their kids and the link between nutrition, physical activity, mental health and learning – because healthy kids are better prepared to learn and thrive!
Anyone can get involved with Every Kid Healthy Week events: Schools are invited to host a live or virtual event (or multiple!) during Every Kid Healthy Week, and families and community members can participate by joining events or by doing activities at home.
