Every child deserves a healthy life, right? Then why do we settle for anything less than the best for our kids? The Alliance for a Healthier Generation thinks we should celebrate the schools that are stepping up their game to help students achieve their healthiest lifestyle possible.
Each year, the Alliance for a Healthier Generation uses a rigorous set of criteria to evaluate schools on how they are helping students live the healthiest life possible. These criteria include serving healthier meals and snacks, getting students moving more, offering high-quality physical and health education, and empowering school leaders to become healthy role models.
After examining schools based on these criteria, the Alliance for a Healthier Generation is proud to announce and recognize more than 300 schools across 30 states. Check out their interactive map, and see what schools in your area are doing to help kids achieve their healthiest life, and see what ideas you can use in your community to help everyone have the best chance at a healthy lifestyle.
