Mission of Our Kohl's Keeping Kids Healthy Program

A community-wide nutrition and physical activity program, the Kohl’s Keeping Kids Healthy Program works to prevent and combat childhood obesity to improve children’s overall health and wellness​.

We know that healthful eating and lifestyle habits are the foundation of good health, and help prevent obesity and other chronic diseases. Together we can make positive changes that have a big impact on our health.
