Healthy Champions Program
The Healthy Champions Program (formerly nrg zones) will celebrate its 10-year anniversary during the 2013/2014 school year. This program, originally developed for schools in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, assisted health leaders with fostering an environment that supports children eating well and being physically active. Participants are recognized as Champions and are equipped with resources to promote good nutrition and active living to youth and families.
The upcoming anniversary will bring exciting new changes to this program. The Healthy Champions Program will now expand to include community based organizations. To enroll, an online assessment will be completed and “stars” will be awarded based on assessment results. Healthy Champions will be recognized with a star status and will set goals for attaining the next level star ranking in the following years. A maximum of five stars can be reached. Participants will be awarded “stars” based on answers to questions based on the Institute of Medicine’s recommendations for goals and strategies to prevent obesity.
