Family Resources


It’s not always easy to get kids to do the things that will keep them healthy. Like eating more of the good stuff and less of the not so good. Like going for a bike ride with a friend instead of watching TV. Like working out a stressful situation by writing down their thoughts instead of lashing out.

Health Powered Kids™ provides fun, easy-to-use information about health and wellness to help keep you and your family healthy. When your kids eat well, stay active and balance their lives, they’ll feel better – and you will, too!

For additional resources that can help you and your family get healthier, visit, or view health and wellness videos covering a variety of topics from the Allina Health Video Library.
