Support Childrens’ Health in New Hampshire


The American Heart Association is working to change the environment where people live, learn, work and play to help families live healthy, happy and productive lives. Almost three out of every four parents are concerned about childhood obesity and overweight issues and their nutritional and physical activity habits. Several health policy goals in NH can help children establish healthy behaviors early and support parents’ efforts to help their children grow into healthy adults. AHA You’re The Cure advocates can help share with lawmakers the benefits of such policies as:

· Eliminate marketing of unhealthy foods and beverages in schools

· Incorporate nutrition, active play and screen time standards for early child care programs

· Creating Complete Streets that are safe and convenient for all users and modes of transportation
