In 2015, we began a three-year initiative to work with county partners in order to accelerate progress toward achieving healthy weight and healthy lifestyles for all. Through a program called Boone County Fit-Tastic, community partners have been trained in the 1,2,3,4,5 Fit-Tastic! effort that began in Kansas City. Click here to learn more about Fit-Tastic.
- Our long term goals include:
- Increasing the proportion of children at a healthy weight
- Increasing the proportion of residents engaged in healthy eating and active living
- Increasing policy and environmental changes to support healthy eating and active living.
