Healthy eating and physical activity solutions for kids

Sharing Thanks for Health and Healthy Kids Part 3

“I am grateful for choice in this country. Most enjoy a wide variety of options for food and beverage choices. I believe in healthy balance and am so glad our work can help kids and families seek and find that balance for tasty, nutritious meals, snacks, and beverages in smart serving sizes that promote good health!” - Vickie L. James, RD, LD, Healthy Kids Challenge Director

“I am thankful for all of the varieties of food that are made so easily available to us these days.” - Tiffany Wegerer, HKC Bookkeeping/Distribution
“I’m thankful for the abilities to walk and run with my kids, and to stand up long enough to fix a meal for my family, and being able to live in the moment and enjoy it all.” - Tammy Simons, HKC Registered Dietitian

“I’m thankful for Healthy Kids Challenge’s simple messages, Healthy6, that can reach kids, families, communities and leaders with easy to use nutrition and physical activity education that promotes healthy change. People are presented with so much nutrition and exercise information in the media, and it is overwhelming to them. HKC’s Healthy6 focus on simple concepts that truly make a healthy difference.” - Sarah Wamsley, HKC Registered Dietitian

“I am thankful for our Girls on the Run program at our school. It offers such a fabulous opportunity for girls to become active while learning many important life lessons. And I am thankful for the confidence running and an active lifestyle has given me personally, and for the influence it has had on others.” - Tiffany Wegerer, HKC Bookkeeping/Distribution
