Which program(s) do we replicate?
Currently, we replicate Healthy Ways (known as Healthy Harlem at Harlem Children’s Zone), a program that champions healthy habits and lifestyles for children and families by providing educational and fun nutrition and physical activity programming.
Why Healthy Ways?
Obesity is a crisis that carries significant costs to child well-being, public health, and the U.S. economy. Childhood obesity rates remain unacceptably high, and disparities persist with lower-income children, with Black and Hispanic children being the most at risk. The causes of obesity are complex and interconnected, requiring a multi-pronged approach to achieving or maintaining a healthy weight in children.
Anchored in best practices and research, Healthy Ways infuses the principles of healthy living throughout our programs, with the ultimate goal of guiding children to build lifelong, healthy habits that support learning, achievement, and growth.
Healthy Ways provides a deep and intensive program for children and their families that also has the potential to catalyze organizational and community culture change.
