Celebrate Every Kid Healthy™ Week


During the last week of April each year, an annual observance of school health and wellness achievements is takes place. This week represents what schools across the country are doing to support child health, including proper nutrition, exercise and learning.

Every Kid Healthy™ week is meant to encourage schools to support health-promoting programs by hosting an event at any point during the month. Consider a field day, pep rally, or other school-wide event to focus solely on health.

According to EveryHealthyKidWeek.org, “More than 7,000 schools have hosted events since 2013, and more than 3 million students, staff, family, and community members have participated in tasting new, nutritious foods at taste tests; learning health tips at school health fairs; competing in field days, running in fun runs; and much, much more.

Every Kid Healthy Week events should promote and reinforce healthy eating, nutrition education, physical activity and physical education.

The site has lots of resources to help you promote your event and get students and the whole community excited and involved.”
