Active kids build stronger muscles and bones and have less risk of becoming overweight and developing Type 2 diabetes or other chronic diseases. Fit kids generally have a better outlook on life, sleep better, and are able to cope better with physical and emotional challenges.


Healthy food is essential for healthy brain and body development. Learning to try new foods and eating a variety of fruits and vegetables is important. When eating healthy foods, children are more likely to get all the nutrients necessary to grow up strong, both in body and mind.

Health +

In addition to physical health, the emotional and social development occurring during school years directly affects children and has an impact on the adult they will become. Healthy kids miss less school. Healthy minds learn and retain information better.

In Their Own Words

“PHS is very teacher-friendly with ready to go lesson plans and everything you need to deliver them. I have received positive feedback from students, parents, and staff regarding the wellness initiatives that are funded through PHS. I highly recommend this health enhancing program!!”

Adam Mercier

“Project Healthy Schools has designed teacher friendly units and resources that allow teachers the freedom to complete in depth lessons related to the core principles of PHS. My students enjoy extension lessons from the foundation lessons that are in place through PHS curriculum.”
