“Making the healthy choice to be physically active or choose foods like fresh fruits & vegetables has gotten harder…To become a healthy society, we need healthy options. Environmental changes can make healthy choices more available. Changing what we eat & drink, making it easier to do the healthy things – that’s the sweet spot for public health.”-Dr. Tom Frieden, CDC Director, during the Twitter #CDCchat on 5/21/12.
It sounds so simple, doesn’t it? Make it easier to choose health. For some of us, choosing the healthy foods and activities IS simple. But for most of us, well, it’s just…not.
That’s a big part of the reason Healthy Kids Challenge® exists yet today, to help the “most of us” take a step closer to making healthy easier. Not a leap, just a step. Our web site and newsletter and even this blog relentlessly challenge you – individually, as groups, and as communities – to make one small, simple, sustainable change for health.
We are committed to helping make the healthy choice the easy choice. Start where you are today. http://bit.ly/actionidea
