About Healthy for Life®

The community engagement component offers nutrition education resources free to facilitators around the country. The turn-key educational experiences emphasize easy methods to prepare healthy and affordable meals. Learn more at www.heart.org/healthyforlife.

Why participate in Healthy for Life?

  • Poor diet is a leading risk factor for morbidity and mortality in the United States and contributes to one in five deaths globally.
  • We believe that improving nutrition is something we need to work on at the individual and community levels.
  • We are hosting this because we care deeply about helping families in our community learn skills such as preparing healthy and affordable meals that will help them have longer, stronger lives to do the things they love with the people they love.
  • We are grateful to the American Heart Association and Aramark for providing the science-based educational resources for this experience.
  • The Healthy for Life® evidence-based nutrition education experiences are supported by American Heart Association science and developed by food and nutrition experts.
