About

Happy Healthy Families is a community project aiming to make Wellington North the healthiest place to raise a child. This initiative engages all sectors of the community to make healthy living the easier choice for families and children.

Happy Healthy Families will encourage Wellington North residents to eat more veggies and fruit, drink more water instead of sugar sweetened beverages, reduce screen time, increase physical activity and increase sleep time.

Happy Healthy Families follows a best practice model called EPODE (‘Ensemble Prévenons l’Obésité Des Enfants’, Together Let’s Prevent Childhood Obesity). EPODE is an internationally recognized health strategy where community partners work together to deliver multiple services and opportunities to help families adopt healthy lifestyles. By partnering with community members, responding to local needs and following the EPODE model, Happy Healthy Families will help make Wellington North the healthiest place to raise a child!
