Healthy Steps for Healthy Lives

The new Healthy Steps for Healthy Lives Family Guide is an engaging, informative resource to help families live healthier lifestyles. Adults will have the opportunity to improve their own health and wellness while helping their children (grades K-6) learn habits that can last a life time! Also available in Spanish, the guide is a companion piece to the Healthy Steps for Healthy Lives Teacher Kits.
