Protecting Our Greatest Assets
The health and well-being of our next generation is critical. We all want our children and their children to be better equipped in every way to succeed in life -- beginning with good health.
Healthy Kids at Play through St. Louis Children's Hospital promotes the health and well-being of children by creating safer places for children to play -- building playgrounds and ballfields, integrating health programs and resources that encourage healthy behaviors, and linking children to services.
The Surgeon General reports that it is important to establish healthy physical activity behaviors early in life. This requires safe places, encouragement and support; where health professionals, families and communities communicate positive, consistent messages that physical activity is fun.
Healthy Kids at Play strives to fulfill these needs. Learn more about Healthy Kids at Play, and set a good example for your children, grandchildren and other children in your life.
