    Health Powered Kids™ is a free community education program created by Allina Health and designed with a singular focus: to empower kids to make healthier choices about what to eat, how to stay active, staying clean and managing stress.

    At healthpoweredkids.org, you can access more than 50 on-and-offline lessons and activities for children and teens to be used at school, home, after-school programs, daycare and community groups (such as Girl Scouts and the YMCA).

    "I started using the exercises on healthpoweredkids.org to help my class burn off a little extra energy and refocus during the long afternoons. By accessing the website directly from my classroom, the kids can see the visuals right on the board. They love it."

    Erin Cramer, third-grade teacher, Park Brook Elementary

    "As a clinical psychologist, I've seen first-hand just how influential support groups are on children and teens... This summer, I was excited to develop a group for kids that focused on healthy living using the Health Powered Kids™ curriculum.

    The kids learned about food labels and took a trip to the grocery store to apply their knowledge, heightened their understanding of the human body and how it works, made fruit smoothies and juice drinks with kale and spinach (which they were surprised to like), and engaged in a fitness challenge counting their steps using pedometers!

    I highly recommend that all medical and mental health professionals who work with kids and families include this curriculum in their practice."

    Lisa Herman, PsyD, Allina Health St. Michael Clinic
