Knowitall Healthy! was created to provide resources that support the objectives of the Student Health and Fitness Act 2005 implemented in South Carolina schools. The Student Health and Fitness Act 2005 was passed by the General Assembly on May 25, 2005 and was signed by the governor on June 1, 2005 to establish physical education, school health services, and nutritional standards in schools. Three state agencies - the SC Department of Education, the Department of Health and Environmental Control, and South Carolina ETV- collaborated to heighten public awareness of the initiative and to extend its reach to all South Carolinians.
