Changing the Course of Kid's Health
Date:2/9/2010

ed innovations in school recreation -- already knowing what we know now – that physical activity and access to good food is essential to learning and a healthy life.

Efforts like the Partnership for a Healthier America are a strong complement to our ongoing efforts. We will continue to use our resources to innovate, fund and convene partners, and grow through tools like social networking. Together, these will help to make real a difference in the systems, policies and efforts that can help children, particularly vulnerable children, thrive.

In addressing childhood obesity, the Kellogg Foundation continues to work broadly on the full range of social determinants -- such as access to good food and open space, quality education, economic security and safe housing -- specifically as they relate to low-income communities and communities of color who too often carry a disproportionate burden. Ensuring the health and well-being of the whole child is of paramount concern and focus.

We are grateful for the good work of so many who are contributing to this common goal of a new generation of kids who have reversed the trend of childhood obesity and other health and learning disparities. This generation and those that follow will reap a lifetime of rewards.

Momentum is building. On-the-ground work being done today in communities nationwide proves we can achieve success. There, people are demonstrating the ingenuity and determination it takes to make real change. The following list of stories illustrates the work underway.
