Healthy Kids Programs

The Kids Health Exhibit

This interactive traveling exhibit for kids ages 6 to 12 teaches healthy lifestyle tips through nine hands-on stations focused on nutrition, physical activity and living tobacco-free. To schedule The Kids Exhibit to appear at a school or library near you, email gethealthy@tanner.org.

Kids 'N the Kitchen

Our mobile teaching kitchens, for grades K-8, help students improve their nutritional IQ by learning cooking fundamentals. The program also helps kids understand how to read food labels, identify hidden sugars and prepare healthy meals.

Safe Routes to School (SRTS)

Get Healthy, Live Well partners with the community, parents and administrators of Carrollton City Schools to make it safer for kids to bike and walk to school, enabling families to embrace a healthier lifestyle. The Carrollton GreenBelt trail system connects many neighborhoods with city schools. Download this map to discover additional safe routes near you. To learn more about Safe Routes to School, visit carrolltoncityschools.net or email gethealthy@tanner.org.

Power Up for 30 (PU30)

The goal of this statewide initiative is to give kids more opportunities for physical activity before, during and after the school day. As part of the program, elementary school teachers learn how to integrate an additional 30 minutes or more of physical activity into the curriculum. A study evaluating the impact of PU30 on Georgia public elementary schools and their students is available online.

View our calendar for upcoming classes and events. To enroll in an upcoming class please register online or call 770-214-CARE (2273).
