Future Well™ Kids
EMPOWERING A NEW GENERATION TO LEAD FULLER, HEALTHIER LIVES

Inspiring kids to develop healthy habits today, to create a healthier tomorrow.

The Future Well Kids programme teaches kids ages 10-13 about noncommunicable (chronic) diseases and the ways that they can stay healthy and reduce their risk of developing chronic diseases later in life. Through an engaging standards-aligned curriculum, students are empowered to take charge of their own health as they learn about chronic diseases like Type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease, while discovering how to reduce their risk of developing these diseases through body science, health, nutrition and healthy lifestyle education.

Get started on thinking in healthy new directions with a wealth of hands-on activities for any learning environment.
