Celebrating World Health Day: Nourishing Kids for a Healthier Tomorrow

As we celebrate World Health Day, let’s dive into the heart of our mission and explore how the USANA Foundation Kids Eat program is making waves in creating a healthier and happier future, starting with the littlest members of our community – kids!

Fueling the Future: How Proper Nutrition Boosts Kids’ Health

We all know the saying, “You are what you eat,” and when it comes to children, this can be especially true.

Proper nutrition is like rocket fuel for growing bodies and developing minds. But let’s be real, getting kids to eat their veggies can be a bit of a challenge, right? Especially when there’s a reason why their cupboards are empty at home or adults can’t help them make meals.

Quality nutrition is a firm foundation for good health, so that’s why we’re so invested in making sure no child ever goes hungry in our community along the Wasatch Front.

Enter USANA Kids Eat: Where Good Food Meets Great Kids

Now, imagine a world where every child has access to a bag filled with seven nutritious meals every weekend.

That’s exactly what the USANA Kids Eat program is all about. No fancy footwork involved, just simple, sustainable nutrition that empowers kids to be their healthiest, happiest selves.

So, how does it work? Well, our incredible volunteers roll up their sleeves and pack our trusty weekend bags with love, care, and all the good stuff – providing essential weekend nutrition to over 1,300 kids each week across the Wasatch Front. Then, our amazing volunteer drivers deliver these bags every week to dozens of schools across the Salt Lake City valley!

With this food, we’re not just filling tummies—we’re nurturing potential and creating a foundation for these kiddos to flourish.

USANA Health Sciences: Building the Healthiest Family on Earth

Now, you might be wondering, “How does Kids Eat align with USANA Health Sciences’ grand vision of creating the healthiest family on earth?”

It’s about creating a ripple effect, touching lives, and fostering well-being. When kids feel loved and supported, and when they’re fed proper nutrition, they can do better in school and thrive in life. USANA Kids Eat fits right into this vision by starting at the grassroots level, ensuring the youngest members of our local community are well-fed and ready to rule the world.
