Welcome to Let’s Move Boise! We invite you to become a partner in a community wide initiative to combat childhood obesity by increasing access to healthy food and physical activity.
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.
Jump in! Join us for these activities and more resources available on our website:
Get fit close to home. You can meet the Mayor’s challenge to walk 150 miles for the sesquicentennial in 2013. Log your miles at walk150.org!
