Healthy Kids Community Challenge
A variety of community groups have come together to focus on making it easier for children and their families to be physically active and eat healthy. We know that physical activity and healthy eating can improve physical health, mental health and overall wellbeing!
But, we know that families have barriers to physical activity and healthy eating, that is where the Healthy Kids Community Challenge comes in.
The Municipality of Grey Highlands, Township of Southgate, and Township of Chatsworth are working with local schools, public health, the community health centre, other community groups, private businesses, parents and youth to identify ways to remove barriers and promote opportunities for healthy living.
The community will be working together over the next 3 years to make it easier to raise healthy children. You might see new policies or bylaws, changes to the physical environment, more social supports, or new and expanded healthy living programs. Although the Healthy Kids Community Challenge is coordinated by the Province of Ontario, our actions will reflect local needs.
There will be a new theme that our community will focus on about every nine months.
