Every day, we work to instill healthy habits in our children. From a young age, parents, caregivers, and educators try to teach them how to grow up healthy by emphasizing the importance of healthy foods and living an active lifestyle. We can all agree that these practices are crucial for the future health of our children.

But it’s also important that the environment outside our homes and schools provide children with the same opportunity to eat healthily. Yet, all too often, parents bring their children to public spaces, like state parks, city libraries, or public pools, and find that there are few healthy food options available for snacks or meals.

Our communities are not yet places where families can reinforce the healthy habits they try to teach at home. But there’s something our policy-makers can do to support children and their parents.

They can Restock our Future.

Voices for Healthy Kids is dedicated to ensuring that people have access to healthy food and beverage options when visiting public places in their communities. It’s not only good for their health, it’s good for their minds. And that is good for all of us.
