Voices for Healthy Kids strives to make every day healthier for every child. We want every child, toddler, and infant in every community to have access to affordable healthy foods and beverages, safe places to play and get active, high-quality early childhood development, and more. Voices for Healthy Kids works around the country to improve or create equitable policies that will make the places kids, live, learn, and play healthier.
We do this by supporting advocacy campaigns, creating visibility for issues that affect children's health, mobilizing communities, helping to advance science and research via communications and messaging expertise, and fostering partnerships.
We need to address the inequities, biases, and racism that exist in current systems and policies and how they have impacted the lives of children – particularly those who are Black/African American, Latino/Hispanic, American Indian/Alaskan Native, or from families who have low income.
We must work together as families, individuals, communities, and a country so that every child has the opportunity to reach their full potential and live a healthy life.
Together, we can make an impact. Keep in touch with us to hear more about the inspiring work that is happening across the country on behalf of our nation’s kids and how you can get involved.
