The community-wide goal of HEALSLO is that all children in SLO County will be healthier through healthful eating and regular physical activity.
To accomplish this goal there are many things we can do. First we need to remember that simple life changes can make a difference. or instance, you can change your level of physical activity by taking a family walk in the evening after dinner, walking your child to school or a nearby park rather than driving her, spending time playing catch or Frisbee versus playing on the computer. Although our heredity may influence how and where we gain weight on our body, the bottom line is there needs to be balance between the number of calories we eat and the number of calories we use.
Find something you like and make it part of your life. Get a friend involved or join a walking group. The nutrition and physical fitness decisions we make today will affect our health tomorrow.
