• Healthy Living

  • Health, Nutrition and Fitness

    4-H health, nutrition, and fitness programs help youth understand the importance of eating right, physical fitness, being active and practicing good hygiene. Mastering these basic health principles place young people on the right track to managing their long-term health.


    Eat4-Health is an innovative program to educate youth on health and nutrition through interactive, immersive activities. Teen health ambassadors and 4-H professionals work with local organizations to develop community-focused events through which youth develop positive perspectives on health and nutrition, and learn to make healthier choices.
