Our Mission

To improve overall health and academic achievement of Tulsa County school-aged children in collaboration with students, schools, and the community by aligning learning and health through comprehensive nutrition and health education.

Why Collaborate with It’s All About Kids

It's All About Kids Program

Since its beginning in 2004, the Tulsa Health Department’s It's All About Kids (IAK) program has provided an opportunity for thousands of school children to improve their knowledge, attitudes and behaviors toward nutrition and exercise through comprehensive health education. Learning healthy habits early follows them throughout their lifetime.  The program was recognized as a Model Practice in 2008 by the National Association for City and County Health Officials (NACCHO).

It’s All About Kids partners with schools to capture valuable data in the areas of academic improvement, decrease in behavioral referrals, and increase in attendance. IAK follows the Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child (WSCC) model placing children in the center as the main focus. The WSCC merges components from both the Coordinated School Health model and the Whole Child Framework to align learning and health.

Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child

WSCC Model

The Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child (WSCC) model was developed by merging the Coordinated School Health model and the Whole Child Framework. The relationship between education and health is evident therefore, the WSCC aligns learning and health rather than focusing on each separately. The child is placed in the center to emphasize the primary focus of the WSCC model. Parents, schools and communities work collaboratively around the child to improve health and academic achievement.

Testimonials

  • "I had a great time (especially for a staff meeting)!  I loved learning different ways to incorporate fitness with my curriculum.  I was engaged and laughing the entire time.  I have already used a few of your ideas in my own classroom (multiplication facts with exercises and the circle activity with states and capitals).  Thank you!."

  • "Great day of learning!  I have began to put together several visuals to use in my nutrition segments."

  • "The scarf activity was good!  It helped the children practice mindfulness by focusing on one task, which was catching the scarf in the other hand."
