Healthy Kids

Making our next generation a healthier generation

We know that everyone should be able to get healthy and live well—especially kids. That’s why we’re working with local schools to make healthier environments for your kids to enjoy. 

Eat a Rainbow  

Convincing kids to eat their fruits and veggies is no small feat. That’s why Tanner Health System’s Get Healthy, Live Well enlisted a troupe of three vegetable superheroes to show kids that eating healthy can be fun. With its “Eat a Rainbow” play, Get Healthy, Live Well has come up with an innovative strategy to educate local children about the importance of eating more fruits and vegetables. Learn more >
