Every Kid Healthy Week

Make Every Kid Healthy

To maintain a healthy weight, youngsters and teens need at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day and their parents need healthy food that's affordable and convenient. National Every Kid Healthy Week, from April 24-28, promotes youngsters' wellbeing. By training teachers in creative PE techniques, supporting faith congregations' health programs and helping day care centers with wellness protocols, the Partnership to Improve Community Health (PICH) Program is doing its part in Fulton County, where one in three kids is overweight or obese.

Try These Tips

The American Heart Association has five easy ways parents can help kids get healthy:

  • Be a good role model – Set an example by eating right and exercising

  • Keep things positive – Make goals realistic and celebrate good behavior

  • Get the whole family moving - Walk, cycle, swim, run or just play together

  • Limit screen time – Allow 2 hours a day for TV, video games and computers

  • Read food labels for fun – Quiz kids on nutrition facts and reward right answers
