KFL&A Region Healthy Kids Community Challenge
The Kingston, Frontenac and Lennox & Addington Region is one of 45 communities across Ontario taking part in the Healthy Kids Community Challenge. This initiative from the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care unites communities with a common goal: promoting children's health through physical activity and healthy eating.
How The Healthy Kids Community Challenge Works
About every nine months, the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care will launch a new theme related to two of the key factors associated with healthy weights in children: physical activity and healthy eating. Our community will rally around the theme and take on projects that help to make it real, in ways that work best for us and where we live.

- Better knowledge and skills for staying active and eating well
- Better access and fewer barriers to healthy choices
- Safe and supportive environments that make it easier to be active and choose healthy food
- Closer links with the community and more chances to be involved and included
