Let’s Move! Missoula is committed to putting Missoula County children on the path to a healthy future during their earliest months and years. Combining comprehensive strategies with common sense, Let’s Move! Missoula has embarked on a journey of education, program expansion, policy development and advocacy. From healthier day cares to safe and accessible trails and parks; from improved nutrition at home and in schools to the effects of physical activity and school performance; from school gardens to more active families –Let’s Move! Missoula is dedicated to exploring every possible solution to provide Missoula children with a healthy lifestyle.
Everyone has a role to play in reducing childhood obesity, including parents and caregivers, elected officials from all levels of government, schools, health care professionals, faith-based and community-based organizations, and private sector companies. Your involvement is key to ensuring a healthy future for our children. View national Let’s Move! website here.
