Through Healthy Living programs, girls focus on physical and emotional health. By participating in this initiative, girls learn the skills they need to keep their bodies healthy, their minds engaged and their spirits alive. By building strong, healthy bodies and learning problem-solving techniques, girls gain the self-confidence and skills needed to develop healthy relationships in which they give and receive the respect and trust every child seeks. This is the first step to helping every girl attain her personal best in life.

More on Healthy Living
Through our program experience and research, Girl Scouts has a unique understanding of the complex issue of healthy living and what motivates youth -- especially girls -- to adopt healthy lifestyles.
With more than 60 healthy living-related badges and a historic emphasis on health in the Girl Scout experience, girls are educated and empowered to take action to strenghten their physical and emotional health and positively impact their communities and the world.
Additionally, the Girl Scout Reseach Institute report, The New Normal? What Girls Say About Healthy Living, tell us that girls believe health combines good nutrition and physical fitness with emotional and social well-being.
Girl Scouts can provide valuable perspectives and counsel in shaping policies that address this and other serious children's issues. GSSWT partners with other non-profits and health institutions to promote and research physical activity in girls.
