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
- To work in partnership with schools and community organizations to increase opportunities for physical activity, health education and good nutrition.
- To increase the percentage of youth who engage in regular physical activity.

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.

Mark Your Calendar! FREE Family Fun Events Planned in 2018
Winona Health and the Winona State University Student Athletic Advisory Committee invite all kids ages 5 to 12 and their families to attend the Healthy Kids Zombie Crawl. The free event will be held at the Winona State University, Integrated Wellness Center, 175 W. Mark Street in Winona.
Children attending the Zombie Crawl are encouraged to dress up like zombies for the event if they wish. Friendly zombies are welcome — nothing too scary please. The Zombie Crawl will take participants on a fun-filled journey around campus with athletes from each sport providing a different activity.
Winona Health’s Healthy Kids events are opportunities for children to have fun, be active and learn about the benefits of a healthy lifestyle. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
