Helping all children grow up at a healthy weight.

Every child should have healthy foods and drinks at home and in school, safe streets for biking and walking, and places to play after school. We are working to ensure that the places where children live, learn, and play make it easy and enjoyable for them to eat healthy foods and be active.

And it’s working.

We’re seeing success around the nation.
