We teach Health Education to Kids because we strongly believe that their future depends upon health literacy. Only through such knowledge can children hope to change the destructive current trend of childhood illnesses that deprives them of life’s opportunities.
But, can Health Education be fun? Children at Green and Blue University say YES!
Do not take our word for it, invite us to your classroom and see for yourself.
Samples of Children’s Classes:

All classes are designed with reference to California State Board of Education Content Standards.
All classes offer a seamless combination of didactic and hands-on activities. We combine multiple learning modalities, rehearsals, practice, play and other techniques for enhanced learning.
Most classes are 60 min long, but can be customized based on the age of the audience.
“As with students throughout the United States, California’s students are facing increasingly serious challenges to good health: obesity and diabetes are rising at alarming rates; asthma continues to be a leading cause of student absences; and too many adolescents continue to make choices that negatively impact their lives.”
Theodore R. Mitchell President, State Board of Education
Jack O’Connell State Superintendent of Public Instruction
”A primary goal of the health education standards is to improve academic achievement and health literacy for all students in California. Four characteristics are identified as essential to health literacy.
Health-literate individuals are:
- Critical thinkers and problem solvers when confronting health problems and issues
- Self-directed learners who have the competence to use basic health information and services in health-enhancing ways
- Effective communicators who organize and convey beliefs, ideas, and information about health issues
- Responsible and productive citizens who help ensure that their community is kept healthy, safe, and secure”
