Healthy Eating,

Active Living

A community collaborative project to help instill the concepts of Healthy Eating and Active Living through out the Mission Valley

Let’s Go! is a childhood obesity prevention program. The program uses evidence-based strategies to increase healthy eating and physical activity among children from birth to 18. The foundation for change is our 5-2-1-0 healthy habits message.

The St. Luke Community Clinics are currently using the Healthy Habits Questionnaire to gather basic healthy lifestyle information from our patients. Our providers have found that simply using and reviewing the questionnaire is a powerful tool for starting the conversation around healthy lifestyles for kids. One of the ways St. Luke is working to build healthy kids and residents of all ages – no matter where they live, work, play or learn is recommending the following resources for physical activity and nutrition.

Here is a list of activities to keep families fit, while having fun. 

Links to local activities are below under resources.
