Champaign-Urbana Public Health District Kicks Off a New Wellness Program

Champaign, IL - The Champaign-Urbana Public Health District (CUPHD) is getting ready to kick off a new wellness program focused on activity and healthy food choices for families. "Let's Get It Started" is a new four-week program that educates families on how to plan, purchase, prepare, and enjoy healthier meals as well as develop active living plans together and set and monitor goals as a family.

During the program, participants will learn about Go, Slow and Whoa foods, label reading, portion control, and different types of physical fitness. One of the four classes will include a grocery store tour. In addition, CUPHD will be working with the U of I Extension who will be performing cooking demonstrations during each class and the families will be able to prepare and eat the food during class.
