Healthy Kids Community Challenge

Background: Raising Healthy Kids Together

With the support of the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, Ontario communities are taking action to promote the health of children through healthy eating, physical activity and healthy lifestyle choices.  Every nine months, Healthy Kids Community Challenge will launch a new theme related to physical activity or healthy eating. 

Theme 1: Run. Jump. Play Every Day. promotes physical activity through active play, active transportation and sports activities.

Theme 2: Water Does Wonders, encourages choosing water as your first choice of drink throughout the day.

Theme 3: Choose to Boost Veggies and Fruit encourages kids and families to make vegetables and fruit a part of every meal and snack. Vegetables and fruit both contain important nutrients for children's growing bodies.
