LET'S MOVE!

is a comprehensive initiative, launched by the First Lady, dedicated to solving the challenge of childhood obesity within a generation, so that children born today will grow up healthier and able to pursue their dreams. Combining comprehensive strategies with common sense, Let's Move! is about putting children on the path to a healthy future during their earliest months and years. Giving parents helpful information and fostering environments that support healthy choices. Providing healthier foods in our schools. Ensuring that every family has access to healthy, affordable food. And, helping kids become more physically active.

Everyone has a role to play in reducing childhood obesity, including parents, elected officials from all levels of government, schools, health care professionals, faith-based and community-based organizations, and private sector companies. Your involvement is key to ensuring a healthy future for our children. Click here to learn more.

Workshops

workshops

Nutrition Services works with numerous partners to help spread the word and educate the community about healthy eating, being physically active and other health topics. 

Train-the-trainer workshops are conducted throughout the year to develop the community’s capacity to teach others and to help us reach a broad number of residents and community members.  Nutrition Services has packaged these workshop materials into toolkits that you can use to share the message and educate others on various topics.  Each toolkit includes a curriculum and supporting materials and handouts for your presentation.  Check out the education modules that are designed for you to present to your clients, at the worksite to staff, or even at a family reunion…
