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 physical activity through comprehensive health education. Learning healthy habits early follows them throughout their lifetime.  The program was recognized as a Model Practice in 2008 and 2019 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.

Testimonials

  • "My classroom is comprised of 4th and 5th grade Special Education students with moderate to severe disabilities.  The instructors were very good to ask me about the various activities and about what would make my students feel successful.  This was so appreciated.  My students had a great time, felt successful and confident participating in all of the activities.  It was a great time of learning and of participation."
