Mission: Improving healthy eating and physical activity through engagement and influencing habits.
Over 25 percent of London’s children and youth are overweight or obese. To prevent weight and health issues later in life, our children and youth need a healthy foundation built on nutrient-rich foods and physical activity.
Our Healthy Eating and Healthy Physical Activity Priority (HEHPA) Group take a collaborative approach toward improving health by promoting awareness initiatives through Middlesex-London in motion™, supporting active neighbourhoods, developing educational and motivational tools for healthy habits, connecting people with healthy events and activities and measuring health improvements in our community.
