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.
Let’s Move Boise! invites you to become a partner in a community wide initiative to combat childhood obesity by increasing access to healthy food and physical activity.
Let’s Move Boise is among 23 cities to earn gold medals in five categories created for the 450 cities, towns and counties participating in the Let’s Move initiative founded by First Lady Michelle Obama. The program calls upon local elected officials to adopt sustainable and holistic policies that improve their community’s access to healthy, affordable food and opportunities for physical activity.
