Partnership:

National 4-H Healthy Habits and Walmart

Description:

4‑H and the Walmart Foundation developed the 4‑H Healthy Habits program to teach skills in nutrition and food access to underserved, disadvantaged youth and families.

What is 4-H Healthy Habits?
The 4-H Healthy Habits program uses a four-pronged approach to strategically leverage the 4‑H system to address food access, nutrition and health equity for underserved youth and families across the country:

  • Deploys university-backed, impactful programming.
  • Reaches diverse audiences through local partnerships.
  • Engages youth voice for more impactful delivery and clear messaging.
  • Provides a system of sustainability to enable continued impact for underserved youth and their families in urban and rural communities.

 

How it works
Leveraging the proven influence of young people, 4‑H Healthy Habits engages teens to empower their peers and families today and to help establish sustainable, healthy habits for their families and communities tomorrow.

The program employs a Teens as Teachers" approach with teens educating younger youth and empowering their parents and families to make healthy food choices.
