Any programs that feature the Healthy Living Initiatives Symbol are programs that are considered to be in line with Girl Scouts of Nassau County's Healthy Living Initiatives.
The Healthy Living Initiatives brings a unique perspective to keeping girls healthy. Girls define health in their own terms, placing as much emphasis on emotional and social well-being as physical health, nutrition and physical fitness. In addition to healthy eating and physical fitness, the Healthy Living Initiative focuses on increasing girls’ self-esteem, media image awareness and how to develop healthy relationships.
