  • childhood obesity/inactivity
  • child safety
  • child poverty & hunger
  • bullying
  • low self-esteem & self-image

  • youth crime and marginalization
 

Through our national programs, we are building Canada’s capacity for future success by:

 
  • tackling youth issues that are at the heart of every community

Healthy Active Living Programs

 

Poor diet and inactivity are threatening the short and long term health of our young people. In the past 20 years the rate of obesity in children has tripled to 26%. More than 90% of Canada’s children do not meet the country’s physical activity guidelines. Nearly 60% of children get less than five servings of fruit and vegetables a day.

 

Our healthy active living programs are intended to address these issues by helping kids adopt healthy attitudes and behaviours around being active and eating well.
