Lt. Governor’s Healthy Kids Challenge

April 5, 2011

Healthy Kid ChallengeAn initiative of Lt. Governor Casey Cagle, the Lt. Governor’s Healthy Kids Challenge is a collaboration of the Office of Lieutenant Governor, the Alliance for a Healthier Generation’s Healthy Schools Program, and other community partners. Formed in 2010 to address the epidemic levels of childhood obesity in Georgia and the serious physical and emotional consequences of the problem, the program encourages schools to partner with their local communities and the Healthy Schools program to confront the childhood obesity crisis by implementing health and wellness programs in Georgia’s schools. By working with educational leaders from across the state, the challenge exposes children to nutritious school lunch options, increased daily physical activity, and greater awareness of the importance of healthy living.
