Washington Action for Healthy Kids is a statewide partnership dedicated to improving the health and educational performance of children by supporting schools to educate the whole child, mind and body. They partner with students, families, schools, non-profits, businesses, state and federal agencies to improve access to nutrition, physical activity, and comprehensive health and physical education. They aim to to ensure that all kids eat right, are active every day, ready to learn, and empowered to make healthy choices. This is accomplished through the exchange of information; the creation and sharing of resources; and by enhancing represented organization’s capacity to partner with students, families, and schools to improve school wellness.
