About Arkansas 4-H Healthy Living
Head, Heart, Hands, and Health - healthy living is part of the 4-H program and identity. We believe that healthy habits begin in families and communities. We strive to equip young people with healthy living knowledge and skills to prepare them to meet today's challenges physically, emotionally, and socially. 4-H Healthy Living programs address issues including nutrition, fitness, substance abuse, safety and social and emotional wellness.
