Healthy and Active Before 5
Preventing obesity through healthy eating and active play.
To protect our children from the growing health crisis of obesity, Kaiser Permanente, First 5 and Families CAN joined together with Contra Costa Health Services to form Healthy and Active Before 5--a collaborative effort to develop a countywide action plan to address the problems of early childhood obesity.
Goal of Healthy and Active Before 5
The goal of Healthy and Active Before 5 is to create a healthier Contra Costa by increasing options and support for healthy and active living in our county, focusing on positive, healthy alternatives and supportive environments.
