The Healthy Living Initiative

The Healthy Living Initiative was developed in 2004 in an effort to combat the growing public health problem of childhood obesity.  The mission of the Healthy Living Initiative is to encourage HCZ’s children and their families to incorporate healthy food choices and physical activity into their daily lives.  In order to encourage HCZ participants to move more and eat better, the Healthy Living Initiative focuses on the 5 key areas listed below:

    1.    Increase Physical Activity
    2.    Provide Nutrition Awareness & Health Education
    3.    Encourage Parental Involvement
    4.    Provide Staff Development
    5.    Conduct Assessments and Evaluation
