Healthy Kids

With A Foreword By Melinda French Gates

By Maya Ajmera

In this new title from The Global Fund for Children, readers learn the different ways kids from around the world can stay healthy. Photographs showcase children from Afghanistan washing their hands, a team of boys from Australia playing sports, a group of girls from Panama wearing their seatbelts. There are many ways kids can practice healthy living, no matter where they live.

In a foreword by Melinda French Gates, co-chair and trustee of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, readers are reminded that not all children are lucky enough to have access to clean water, or to receive vaccines regularly. Back matter includes further information about how to live healthy lives, and how kids can help to improve healthy living around the world so that more kids become healthy kids.

With the establishment of programs like First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move! initiative which emphasizes the significance of focusing on children’s health issues around the world, HEALTHY KIDS is a welcome addition that will help increase awareness of this important issue.
