Ready, Set, Cook! Serves Up Health
According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, almost 20 percent of Michigan adolescents are considered overweight. Ready, Set, Cook! is Health Alliance Plan's signature campaign to address childhood obesity by teaching parents and children how to make good decisions about nutrition and meal preparation.
Children who participate in healthy eating habits and learn food preparation skills early are more likely to maintain these habits as adults.

More than 18 percent of Michigan's adolescents are overweight, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Ready, Set, Cook! teaches children 8 to 14 how to make healthy choices.
Five fruits and vegetables per day, two hours or less of screen time per day, one hour of physical activity per day and zero sugary drinks are the basis for a healthy childhood. Staying at a healthy weight is just one way to help kids be their best.
