Creating Healthier Environments

2018 Progress Report

PHA works with institutions and corporations to cultivate and scale healthier environments for children of all ages, from early childhood through young adulthood, so that healthy habits take root and are reinforced outside of the home.

Our partners improve food and beverage choices and increase opportunities for physical activity in a wide range of environments, enabling kids and families to make healthy choices all day long. Our Active Design partners create housing designed for healthier living, including indoor and outdoor spaces that encourage greater movement, while also providing access to healthier foods. Our early childhood education partners ensure children are eating healthier, nutritious meals and snacks and getting out of their seats and away from screens. Children in out-of-school-time settings move more and eat healthier thanks to changes our partners have made. Our Healthier Campus Initiative makes sure young adults establish healthy habits during their first years of independence.
