    The new year is a time for resolutions, many of which include getting healthier by eating better foods and exercising more. While health has always been one of the cornerstones of 4-H, clubs across Kentucky will ramp up their health efforts during the 4-H Health Month in February to encourage young people to develop healthy habits.

    Kentucky 4-H is participating in the 4th H for Health Challenge and has teamed up with the Health Kids Out of School Initiative and Tufts University School of Nutrition to offer this program.
