Choose My Plate

The City of Coeur d’Alene Is excited to announce they are participating in the national “Let’s Move” program. Today nearly one in three children are overweight which puts them in greater risk for diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, cancer, and asthma. Cities and communities have teamed with the National League of Cities and the US Department of Health and Human Services to help provide residents, parents, and caregivers with information to help reduce these risks. The best practices include good nutrition, physical activity, and reduction of screen time.
