Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Doubles Its Commitment to Helping All Children Grow Up at a Healthy Weight

Congratulations to the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) for doubling down on children’s health. Their announcement today of an additional $500 million over the next ten years to ensure that all children in the United States can grow up at a healthy weight is monumental.

We have been honored to work alongside RWJF through the Alliance for a Healthier Generation’s Healthy Schools Program since 2006. Their tremendous support has enabled us to change the culture of health in more than 27,000 schools across the country.

We are proud of the success we have achieved with RWJF and look forward to our continued work together to ensure every young person has the opportunity to live a long, healthy life.
