Paving The Way To Wellness For The Next Generation...

In 2013, Rhode Island conducted the largest per capita and most synergistic celebration of children’s
health this country has ever seen. Let’s keep the momentum going in 2014 and have the smallest state again provide the biggest impact on children’s health in the country. And then, after we’ve shown that
we can make a difference in Rhode Island, let’s take this celebration to the nation.

 

We hold pep rallies to get kids excited about football. We assemble to remember that character counts.
It’s time to do something to get kids excited about their health. And so Eat Healthy RI was created.
In last years event, formerly known as the All State Read, over 75,000 students at more than 200
schools, libraries, and youth programs throughout the state participated in the Statewide Reading
event of Is Your Hair Made of Donuts?

 

And this year, we are thrilled to announce that businesses throughout the state of Rhode Island will
also be participating in Eat Healthy RI.

 

Please join us as we launch our 2014 campaign to educate children on the importance of healthy
eating with new and innovative programming that  expands upon last year’s event.

Today, children are faced with a deluge of junk food choices the moment that they step away from their doors. Nutrition and what children eat are inextricably tied to their well being. Please join us in this initiative to teach children that they are what they eat. Here's to Your Health!
