Let’s Move! Union City
As a city we are committed to empowering every resident, especially our children, to live healthier lifestyles. Many of us lead busy and stressful lives that may lead to poor choices in nutrition, physical activity, and rest patterns. Our concern is the direct effect these choices have on our children. In response to this concern, Union City has joined First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move! Campaign to solve childhood obesity within a generation.
Over the past three decades, childhood obesity rates in America have tripled. Today, nearly one in three children in the United States is overweight or obese, which puts them at greater risk for health problems like diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, cancer, and asthma. No one wants to see our children face these problems and WE are in a position to teach them the importance of making sustainable and wholistic decisions regarding their health.
