Healthy Kingston for Kids

creating healthy places

Where were you on the first Food Day, October 24, 2011?
Here is a story about where we were.

Creating Healthy Places to Live, Work and Play is a project in Ulster County working to change policy, systems and the environment to create a climate where the healthy choice is the easy choice.

The Community Heart Health Coalition (CHHC) of Ulster County works with childcare center professionals to implement the Nutrition and Physical Activity Self Assessment for Child Care centers (NAPSACC) program. Child care center professionals are trained to improve nutrition, increase physical activity and reduce screen time at their facilities.

Working to Reverse Childhood Obesity

Cornell Cooperative Extension Ulster County (CCEUC) and several partners are leading an initiative funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to reverse the childhood obesity epidemic in Kingston, NY, through environmental and policy change. CHHC is one of the four committees charged with seeing out the work plan of the grant.

CHHC also is chairing the Healthy After School Snack Committee. Members of this committee work closely with the school district and after-school programs to change the food available to youth during the after-school hours. They develop nutritional and cultural criteria for after-school snacks, write a model healthy snack policy to be adopted by institutions in Kingston and assist institutions to make changes in practices.

BodyWorks Miller School in Kingston, NY


BodyWorks is an obesity prevention program developed by The Office on Women’s Health, U.S Department of Health and Human Services, to help parents and caregivers of adolescent girls evaluate and improve family eating and exercise habits.

Through facilitated workshops, parents and caregivers will learn how to recognize current healthy practices and build upon them to create changes for their families that include the adoption of healthy eating habits and breaking down the barriers that keep people from engaging in physical activity, while recognizing the impact that the environment and media have on their choices.
