Eating Well & Exercising
Helping youth and families to eat well and live active lifestyles

Fortunately, healthy habits like eating well and exercising can begin at home. These online tools and resources can help parents support their children in developing healthy lifestyles and positive self-images. They will show you how to turn screen time into active time, set routines for healthy family meals, and get the whole family involved in leading a healthier lifestyle.
