The General Mills Foundation, in collaboration with the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Foundation, has revealed the recipients of its 2012 Champions for Healthy Kids grants.
As part of the programme’s 10 year anniversary, 10 ‘best of the best’ legacy award recipients were selected from previous Champions for Healthy Kids grantees. Each organisation was awarded $50,000 to continue their proven programming to improve nutrition and physical fitness behaviours among youth.
The goal of the General Mills Champions for Healthy Kids grants is to encourage communities in the US to improve the eating and physical activity patterns of young people aged 2-18.
