Action for Healthy Kids

Former U.S. Surgeon General David Satcher formed Action for Healthy Kids in 2002 in response to the rising rates of obesity in children.

Action for Healthy Kids works with more than 60 national organizations and government agencies in all 50 states and the District of Columbia to create a grassroots infrastructure of educators, health professionals and parents to help kids develop healthy, lifelong habits.
