Boise’s kids need our help. Children who are overweight and obese are at higher risk for cardiovascular disease, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, prediabetes, joint problems, sleep apnea, cancer and poor self-esteem.
We are working in collaboration with the National League of Cities’ Healthy Communities for a Healthy Future to make substantive changes by educating child-care providers, raising awareness about choosemyplate.gov and school breakfast/lunch programs, growing fruits and vegetables, and providing neighborhood-based activities for kids and adults.
