ADDITIONAL INFO

"What's your healthy power?" is a question Healthy Learning Paths asks kids and parents. You may be surprised by the answers from kale to kindness.  We invite you to join our mission to spread the power of health for children.  We offer labs where children practice health skills while learning about the brain, heart, and emotions.  Our programs are science-based with fun activities that help children make connections between healthy choices and healthy bodies, minds, and emotions.  Children support one another on their shared journey in health.  Children gain confidence from our programs as they discover they have the power to make healthy choices.  Learn more healthy powers at healthylearningpaths.org.
