Healthy Kids Community Challenge


Are you an early childhood educator, teacher, or recreation leader looking to promote healthy habits in your setting? These resources are here to help!


Children identify their teachers as people who influence what they eat and do. When you talk about healthy eating, make healthy food choices, and engage in physical activity, your students are more likely to do the same.

Physical Activity Resources


Active for Life Parent Resources

The Active for Life website offers lesson plan and resources that educators, caregivers, and program leaders can use to help children to develop physical literacy.

Children develop physical literacy by learning a wide variety of fundamental movement skills that allow them to enjoy many different physical activities and sports. Without physical literacy, they are less likely to stay active for life.
