Champaign-Urbana Public Health District Teams Up with Area Grocers to Make Healthier Food Selections Easier

Champaign, IL - The Champaign-Urbana Public Health District (CUPHD) has been working with area schools the past six years to promote healthy eating and physical activity through the CATCH program (Coordinated Approach to Child Health). Now, CUPHD is teaming up with local grocers to help shoppers identify healthier foods.

CUPHD is inviting local grocers to participate in a campaign to help shoppers easily identify smarter food and beverage choices. Healthy eating is supported by helping kids and families easily identify which foods are healthy and which foods should be eaten less often. Students at the CATCH schools can now share the tools they have been given with their families to identify foods by the use of GO, SLOW and WHOA.
