MissionVision: All Children Nourished and Active.
MIssion: Empowering healthy habits and transforming environments where children live, learn and play.
Inspired by the knowledge that improving a child's health can impact their entire future, we are dedicated to helping children and families establish healthy habits that will last a lifetime.
What We DoHealthMPowers promotes healthy habits to build a better future for children. By integrating nutrition education and physical activity into schools, childcare centers, and after-school programs, we create a culture that supports lifelong healthy lifestyle choices for children, families and communities. HealthMPowers is a national leader in children's health, with a proven, 19-year track record of improving health knowledge and behaviors among children.
By implementing evidence-based guidelines for health and fitness established by the CDC, HealthMPowers helps children make measurable improvements in their health, such as a reduction in BMI and an improvement in physical fitness. HealthMPowers partners with nearly 500 schools, childcare centers, and afterschool programs throughout Georgia to teach children how to make healthy eating and exercise a regular part of their everyday lives. Last year, we served nearly 195,000 students across over fifty different counties. We focus our work in underserved, low-income communities, where we feel we can have the greatest impact, providing trainings and resource materials to empower children and those who care for them to make healthy life choices.
