Project Healthy Kids (PHK)

Project Healthy Kids (PHK) is a non-governmental organization (NGO) that addresses childhood undernourishment and obesity prevention, to help kids learn to eat healthy and be active everyday. Schools can actively impact our children nutrition and physical activity by providing opportunity to promote healthy eating and active living.

Here are the Facts

Helping children learn to eat right and be active every day means they have a better shot at being successful in school – and in life. But, our children’s health and their ability to learn continue to be in jeopardy. The facts are alarming and should encourage all of us to take action:

  • An increasing percentage of children in our schools are obese or overweight.
  • Overweight kids are likely to become overweight adults.
  • Poor nutrition is everywhere; Less than 2 percent of school-age children consistently eat well.
  • Kids are less active overall due to today's fast-paced but sedentary lifestyles. Only a negligible number of children in schools have daily PE at school.
  • A high percentage of school-age children watch an average of 5 or more hours of TV on a school day.
  • Overweight kids miss school 4 times as much as normal weight kids. If kids aren't in school, they can't learn.
  • Low-income and minority children are most seriously at risk.
  • All of these children face serious, yet preventable, obesity-related health risks such as diabetes, heart disease and some types of cancer.

If we don't help our children learn to eat right and be active every day, then this generation will be the first to live shorter lives than their parents.

This is where Project Healthy Kids (PHK) comes in. We are focused on raising awareness and helping schools and parents to close existing gaps and help our children learn to eat right and be active everyday.
