Take Charge is helping WEC children to eat healthy during sporting events and day camp activities!
Physical activity and healthy eating are keys to good health especially as children grow up and become adults. Unfortunately, salty and sugary snacks have become widely available in our community, and are often offered to children during sporting events and day camp activities.
What are we changing?
The Take Charge program is making sure that whenever food and beverages are offered, they are healthy and nutritious. This will support children to play better and enjoy camp activities.
Take Charge sports associations and day camps will:
- Ensure healthy food and beverage options are offered to children
- Send out educational resources to families to promote healthy lifestyles at home
Look for the Take Charge logo on your sports association or day camp website to make sure that they will support the health of your child!
