Healthy students learn better. Studies show healthy students perform better on tests, attend school more often, and behave better in class.
Through our evidence-based Healthy Schools Program, we help schools adopt policies and practices that empower the entire school community to move more, eat better, and develop healthy habits. Our approach is rooted in science and delivered with care—from a robust virtual platform and direct service to our valued community partners.
Our program is proven to have a positive impact on student health. In 2015, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention published a study in Preventing Chronic Disease which found that meaningful participation in the Healthy Schools Program is linked to reductions in the prevalence of obesity and overweight among students in high-need schools.
Through Healthier Generation’s Healthy Schools Program, more children nationwide are gaining the opportunity to build a healthy future. In fact, more than 42,000 schools are already making healthy changes as members of the Healthy Schools Program. Is your school ready to join us? Get started today to make your school a healthy school.
