Heart Health Resources for Teachers
Helping educators share heart-healthy lessons with the next generation
We all know how important it is to take care of ourselves when we're young. And we also know that in today's hectic world, it's sometimes difficult to make the healthiest choices. That's why we work with teachers and other educators across the region to help children and adolescents learn more about heart health and how to maintain it.
We offer many resources for bringing heart-healthy lessons into the classroom.
Kellogg's LAUNCH program
The Learning and Understanding Nutrition Choices and Health program provides tools for teaching the importance of good nutrition and exercise. Lesson plans and classroom activities are provided for students from preschool through eighth grade.
American Heart Association tools for educators
Help students learn healthy habits through lessons in the classroom or the gym. The American Heart Association offers lesson plans and a wide variety of fun, healthy activities for elementary and middle school students.
Created by Toni Yancey, MD, this program helps you get your students moving a little bit more each day, even if time and resources are limited. Find ways to take activity breaks without a gym or even when it's raining outside.

Learn more about your own heart health and share what you learn with your students.
