Outdoor Activities in Nature Can Make Kids Healthier and More Ready to Learn 

Our nation’s children are suffering from a variety of chronic health conditions, such as obesity and diabetes. Sedentary lifestyle and physical inactivity have contributed greatly to these health problems, and low-income and minority communities suffer disproportionately. Research indicates unstructured outdoor activities may improve children’s health.  NEEF’s Children and Nature Initiative: Rx for Outdoor Activity www.neefusa.org/health/children_nature is utilizing nature prescriptions and connecting children and families with safe and easily accessible outdoor areas. Learn how to implement this replicable model in your schools and community.
