Making each day healthier for all children.

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.

Huge Complete Streets Impact in Kansas City, MO!

The Kansas City, MO City Council approved a Complete Streets policy (with a 13-0 vote) that will allow the city to create a community where active transportation is integrated into street design rather than being an afterthought.  Citizens of all abilities in Kansas City will be able to engage in more active transportation, such as biking and walking, which means healthier citizens and healthier communities!
