A Resource for Parents Everywhere

There is no turnkey solution to living a healthier life. Our bodies, our environments, our families vary in ways that make us the unique people we are. The stories in this book are from moms, dads, and kids who have realized these differences, embraced them, and used them to create healthy lifestyles that work for their families.

This collection of stories compiled by the Michael & Susan Dell Foundation and the Alliance for a Healthier Generation is available at no or low cost in physical and digital form.
