Some of the highest provincial rates of childhood obesity are found in Eastern Ontario. Unhealthy weight in children can lead to medical conditions that we normally see in middle-aged adults (e.g. hypertension, diabetes, and respiratory problems).
Energize… Now for Tomorrow aims to develop healthy, happy communities through the adoption of regular physical activity and healthy eating habits among children and youth. It’s important that community members and organizations work together to create supportive environments encouraging families to make physical activity and healthy eating part of their daily lifestyle.
Energize representatives are working hard to support our communities in creating healthy environments that promote quality daily physical activity and healthy eating for all children.
