At Nestlé Canada our vision is to help Canadians live healthier and happier lives and so we’re proud to support Healthy Me Week – an annual national initiative to inspire, motivate and energize Canadian families to lead healthier, more active lifestyles.
Running from June 1 to 7, Healthy Me Week encourages Canadians to make simple, manageable health changes in just three simple steps: Get Up (be active for at least 60 minutes a day), Fuel Up (eat well-balanced meals and healthy foods) and Own Up (take control by being your own healthy active living champion). The week centers around a 7-Day Challenge, calling on participants to take part in a new healthy lifestyle activity each day. Resources to support these behaviours and an ongoing commitment are available on the Healthy Me Week website.
This year, in addition to public service announcements and a new contest for schools, Healthy Me Week is going social with a new campaign inviting Canadians to share their healthy, active living strategies declaring “My Healthy Me is …” and using #healthymeweek when posting on social media. Watch for appearances by celebrities, on-air personalities and athletes sharing their personal “Healthy Me” approach on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
You can also join the 7-day Challenge – by making one small, simple and healthy change a day. It can be as simple as walking to school or work, getting a good night’s sleep or trying out a new recipe full of fresh fruits and vegetables.
Nestlé Canada is pleased to take part in this initiative along with media, business, community, sport, not-for-profit and community groups across Canada as a member of the Companies Committed to Kids partnership. It is one of many initiatives Nestlé Canada sponsors to help promote healthy lifestyles, such as the Healthy Kids Quest, a free program that delivers a nutrition curriculum in schools for kids in grades 1 to 3 across the country to help kick-start healthy eating at an early age.
Let’s all join the movement to lead healthier, more active lifestyles. Join us in the Healthy Me Week challenge and share your tips and tricks on social media using #healthymeweek and inspire others to do the same.
