Welcome to Healthy Kids!

Winona Health’s Healthy Kids Program supports children making healthy choices by promoting physical activity, healthy eating, safety and wellness to children ages 5 – 12. Since its founding in 2007, Healthy Kids has served thousands of children with programs that emphasize health, exercise, safety and fun.

Healthy Kids partners with schools and agencies that serve youth in Winona and surrounding communities to provide year-round health and fitness activities and programs.

Healthy Kids Goals

  1. To work in partnership with schools and community organizations to increase opportunities for physical activity, health education and good nutrition.
  2. To increase the percentage of youth who engage in regular physical activity.
  3. To improve lives by offering programs that encourage physical activity and healthy habits for a lifetime.

In order to achieve these goals, collaborate closely with local schools and community groups throughout the year. All Healthy Kids programs focus on education and empowerment so our children can make the healthy choice the easy choice.
