Ready, Set, Go!
Healthy KIDS - Ready, Set, Go provides elementary school aged children with simple, engaging and culturally relevant health education materials on nutrition and fitness.
Ready, Set, Go! Newsletters
English and Spanish newsletters were selected as a fun and effective way to reach our target audience of 6 - 10 year olds. Ready, Set, Go! newsletters provide relevant messages about nutrition and fitness with age appropriate information and fun activities to emphasize easily achievable steps to better health.
The Healthy KIDS Program
Ready, Set, Go! is part of The Children's Health Fund's Healthy KIDS Program. Created by clinicians from The Children's Health Fund's National Network, the Healthy KIDS program consists of middle school and elementary school newsletters, corresponding lesson plans and a parent guide. Materials are easy to understand - with elementary school materials testing at or below 1st grade reading level, and middle school materials testing at or below 5th grade reading level. All materials are produced in accordance with low-literacy design conventions. Materials are reviewed by a medical anthropologist for cross-cultural appropriateness and an exercise physiologist for safety.
MetLife Foundation is the Founding Supporter of Healthy KIDS.
