Action for Healthy Kids (AFHK) is a nationwide initiative dedicated to improving the health and educational performance of children through better nutrition and physical activity in schools. This effort represents a response to our nation's epidemic of overweight, sedentary, and undernourished children and adolescents.

The West Virginia Action for Healthy Kids (WV AFHK) team is addressing the epidemic of overweight, undernourished and sedentary youth by focusing on changes in the school environment. Supported by the national AFHK organization, the WV AFHK team consists of a diverse group of education, health, nutrition and physical activity representatives that work to facilitate meaningful change in schools by expanding opportunities for students to learn and engage in healthy eating and physical activity habits.
