Mission in Action
A Promise to America's Children

The Y is making a significant commitment to help improve the health of our nation's children. We've long been one of the country's leading providers of child care. Now we want to be the healthiest.

The Y recently committed to the Partnership for a Healthier America to adopting new healthy living standards in our child care and afterschool programming. Because of our focus on youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, and as a leading child care provider in the U.S., the Y can lead in making healthier lifestyles part of our programs by providing more fruits and vegetables, making water the primary beverage offered for meals and snacks, and increasing the amount of exercise for youngsters in our programs.

These new guidelines grew out of discussions the Y has had with First Lady Michelle Obama's office and the Partnership for a Healthier America, a two-year-old nonprofit group dedicated to working with the private sector to ensure the health of our nation's youth by solving the childhood obesity crisis.

Approximately 700,000 children are enrolled in early childhood, afterschool and summer programs at Ys across the country. Over the next few years, with concerted effort and help from vendors and other community partners, they will be living healthier lives inside and outside the Y.
