Healthy Kids IS the Challenge

November 19, 2009

We want healthy kids. For over a decade Healthy Kids Challenge has focused on healthy kids – a gigantic challenge, wouldn’t you agree? But it’s our passion, our expertise, our obsession if you will. So how do we do it?

We rely on literally thousands of people to help us! There’s power in numbers you know. While we offer tailored trainings and programming for schools and youth leaders around the country, you don’t have to be “trained” to be involved with the Healthy Kids Challenge. All it takes is a person who is willing to take action for healthy kids. We even have our own term – KidLinkTM – a person who can help kids make healthy eating and physical activity choices a habit.

Are you a KidLinkTM ? If you have kids of your own, interact with them outside of school, work with them in your career, volunteer to help them in the community, serve them as a health professional, then the answer is YES!

You can do something! See the many resources and levels of involvement we offer and join us in our Challenge – the Healthy Kids Challenge – today!

    Challenging for sure! Many times kids are resistant to changes and sometimes all it takes is a little explanation. It is easy to overlook the fact that they don't just want to be told, they want to know why. I've found soemtimes a quick explanation is enough, they like to know!

    Wouldn't you agree that adults are resistant to change, too? It's human nature. We've seen success in many schools and youth programs with both adults and kids learning to make healthy changes over the years. We know it's possible! It's not always about "why", sometimes it's just about having the right environment and the right support to see the change through.

    I find that kids love the attention an adult gives, even if they don't show it on the outside. They need our guidance. Words of kindness, encouragement, snippets of healthful information; every little bit you do makes a difference.

    I guess that's one of the reasons why we train people to use every-day ways – small, simple changes that make a difference for kids. Every day. It's easier and more sustainable over the long run to do it this way. After all, actions speak louder than words. If adults take action for health, then kids will follow.
