Healthy eating and physical activity solutions for kids

Join Us! Sharing Thanks for Health and Healthy Kids

I thought this would be fun to do; reflect on our work during this month of Thanksgiving...but little did I know the range and depth of all the expressions of gratitude coming from each member of our Healthy Kids Challenge team. It seems the list keeps growing, and we’d like you to join us! Please feel free to add your “thanks” related to health and healthy kids in the comments here, or over on our Facebook page at

“I am thankful for KidLinks, adults in the lives of children, who have the opportunity to be a positive influence with the choices and decisions kids make regarding food and activity. They are the lifeblood of Healthy Kids Challenge’s ability to reach hundreds of schools and communities and thousands of youth and their families each year now for almost 15 years!” - Vickie James, Healthy Kids Challenge Director

“I am thankful for all of the "healthy" relationships in my life - family, friends, neighbors and acquaintances - that bring so much joy to my life.” - Tiffany Wegerer, HKC Bookkeeping/Distribution

“I’m thankful for the teachers, youth leaders, parents and individuals who contact us sharing how they have used our materials and services, tell us about their successes, as well as letting us know how to serve them better. They inspire and give purpose to our work at HKC.” - Sarah Wamsley, HKC Registered Dietitian

“I am so very thankful for good working relationships within our HKC team, and the family atmosphere we enjoy.” -  Tammy SImons, HKC Registered Dietitian

“I am thankful to be a part of Healthy Kids Challenge, a nonprofit of creative and caring people making a difference for kids' healthier tomorrows. It is a nonprofit that every day, shows KidLinks ways to help kids find balance and enjoy healthy eat and move choices.”  - Claudia Hohnbaum, MA, RD, LD, Healthy Kids Challenge Assistant Director
