Background Discussion
  • The Florida Department of Health has launched a healthy weight campaign known as "Healthiest Weight Florida," a public-private collaboration to help Florida's children and adults make informed, consistent choices about healthy eating and active living.  This program has been embraced by individuals and businesses in many cities, counties, and communities.
  • The State Surgeon General has launched the 2016 Healthy Weight Community Champion Recognition Program that will recognize local governments and active municipalities (cities, towns, and villages) and 67 counties that implement policies to help people become more physically active and improve nutrition.  Best practice policies implemented by communities will be recognized on January 4, 2016.
