Montana Action for Healthy Kids Team is dedicated to improving the health and wellness of our children in schools and communities through nutrition and physical activity where children learn, participate in, and enjoy healthy lifestyle behaviors.

Montana Action for Healthy Kids (MT AFHK) is a statewide group working avidly to make childcare centers, schools and communities healthy places for kids by enhancing nutrition and physical activity opportunities. MT AFHK is a sub-committee of Eat Right Montana. Membership is open to anyone who is interested in supporting healthy kids. MT AFHK meets quarterly to keep abreast of current happenings, share resources and information, and is involved at the state and grassroots local level to support healthy schools and communities.
