Resource Alert: The Healthy Kids Club

If you are looking for some great tips on teaching kids healthy habits, The Healthy Kids Hub is a website that offers hundreds of resources to support the implementation of three guiding principles for healthier out-of-school-time programs: Drink Right, Move More, and Snack Smart.

Girl Scouts has an organizational commitment to healthy living, aiming to make positive contributions to kids’ lives, so they are equipped with the skills and confidence to become healthy and happy adults. Out-of-school-time organizations like ours play a key role in promoting health and wellness programs that can impact not only the children, but the leaders and families as well.

So, what can you do? Visit and browse through the resources on your own, or complete a brief survey to get resources tailored to your program’s specific needs.  You can also join other leaders from around the country in taking the pledge to adopt the three principles.  Those who take the pledge by May 8, 2013 will be entered into a random drawing to win one of 100 $50 gift cards.  Learn more at
