Healthy Kids Community Challenge

About the Healthy Kids Community Challenge

The Healthy Kids Community Challenge (the Challenge) was a community-led initiative funded by the province of Ontario between 2015 and 2018. The goals of the Challenge were to support the well-being of children and to help create communities where it is easy for children to lead healthier lives!

The Challenge was split into four themes that focused on key factors linked to preventing childhood overweight and obesity, such as physical activity, healthy eating and healthy behaviours. A toolkit was created to house electronic copies of all of the resources created and shared during each of the four themes of the Challenge. These include infographics, posters and other supporting materials.

The toolkit includes a fun, edutainment-style film to share the many important messages for becoming and staying a “Healthy Kid”. The film is modelled after the popular live theatre performances that toured local elementary schools during the Healthy Kids Community Challenge.
