Every Kid Healthy Week (April 24-28, 2023)
Every Kid Healthy Week: What is it?
Every Kid Healthy™ Week is an annual celebration of school health and wellness achievements. It takes place during the last full week of April – each day shines a spotlight on the actions schools and families are taking to improve the health and wellness of their kids. We also highlight the link between nutrition, physical activity, mental health and learning – because healthy kids are better prepared to learn and thrive!
