The Healthy Eating Active Living HEAL project involves several strategies to target healthy eating, active living, positive body image and living smoke free to children aged 7-13 years old. The Healthy Kids Strategy provides opportunity and support for healthy eating and engaging with Elders, and to increase traditional and recreational activities for youth ages 13 to 25 years old.
