Promising Practices: Hebni’s Afterschool Program Provides Nutrition Education to Students

The effects of food insecurity extend well beyond one’s household. Hebni recognizes the lasting impacts of malnutrition on people of all ages and has created a community-based approach to educating high-risk, culturally diverse populations about nutrition strategies to prevent diet-related diseases.

K.Y.D.S (Keeping Your Diet Straight) Take Charge! is an afterschool program created by Hebni that targets students from Title 1 schools who are at risk for obesity. The program educates youth about age-appropriate nutrition and exercise using the USDA’s evidence-based nutrition curriculum.

Our partners AdventHealth, Orlando Magic, Disney, and Florida Blue have supported this cause. Join them and learn more about K.Y.D.S. Take Charge! and the work of Hebni by clicking here.
