About Us

The New Jersey Partnership for Healthy Kids (NJPHK) is focused on convening, connecting and empowering community partnerships across the state to help children achieve a healthy weight. NJPHK promotes policy and environmental changes that support healthy eating and increase opportunities for physical activity.

NJPHK is a statewide program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF), with technical assistance and direction provided by the New Jersey YMCA State Alliance.

Building on the work of RWJF, NJPHK’s strategies support the following priorities:

  • Ensure that all children enter kindergarten at a healthy weight.
  • Make a healthy school environment the norm and not the exception across the United States.
  • Make physical activity a part of the everyday experience for children and youth.
  • Make healthy foods and beverages the affordable, available, and desired choice in all neighborhoods and communities.
  • Eliminate the consumption of sugar-sweetened beverages among 0-5 year olds.
