We're spreading body confidence across the USA, so every child can grow up with a healthy relationship to food and their body. BE REAL USA is a grassroots movement linking caring people in their local community, business, and government with education and legislative advocacy opportunities. Research shows that children who grow up body confident have better physical and mental health, do better in and out of school,and are more likely to fulfill their unique potential. Together we can change a culture that isn't working for ANY BODY.
