Healthy Kids

Fact:
More than 33% of children and adolescents are overweight or obese. That’s 25 million kids and teenagers.

In fulfilling our vision to advocate good health, United Way of Hernando County offers a free health program to help motivate children to stay healthy and active.


Follow the steps below to get started with Healthy Kids:

  • Print out your child's free Healthy Kids activity booklet by clicking HERE
  • Children participate by tracking their activities listed in the book
  • As they attempt/complete the activities by Giving It A Shot, the parent/guardian initials the booklet (participants may substitute an activity as needed to fit their physical capabilities)
  • Booklets may then be returned to the United Way office for recognition

United Way would like to honor your child for Giving It A Shot by presenting them with a certificate and taking their picture for our "Wall of Fame!"

This initiative is focused on building self-esteem and healthy fun.
