Healthy lifestyles including healthy eating and regular physical activity habits begin at an early age and can be linked to a number of factors including the social and physical environment. The societal trend toward unhealthy body weight has also occurred among children.

Healthy Eating, Active Living - Lisa Morris MSW Executive Director Partnership for Public Health .
Excess weight has become a prevalent problem in the United States. Being overweight or obese can indicate an unhealthy lifestyle that puts individuals at risk for a variety of further health issues including hypertension, heart disease and diabetes. Healthy lifestyles including healthy eating and regular physical activity habits begin at an early age and can be linked to a number of factors including the social and physical environment. The societal trend toward unhealthy body weight has also occurred among children. The proportion of overweight or obese children in our region is higher than overall rates across New Hampshire. This presentation will provide an overview on what’s happening in the region and what our state, our community and our families can do to tackle this issue.
