Anaheim HEAL Zone
Healthy Eating Active Living
In January 2012, Activate Anaheim, a YMCA-led collaboration, received a $1 million grant from Kaiser Permanente to promote Healthy Eating and Active Living in Anaheim. The investment is part of Kaiser Permanente’s new three-year, more than $7 million HEAL (Healthy Eating Active Living) Zones initiative across Southern California.
Each of Kaiser Permanente’s funded HEAL Zones will focus on three specific goals over the next three years:
1. Decrease calorie consumption, especially sugar-sweetened beverages
2. Increase consumption of healthy food and beverages
3. Increase daily physical activity
Anaheim HEAL Zone healthy community initiatives, strategies, and policy changes are being implemented to help families who live, work and play, in the Anaheim HEAL Zone eat healthier and move more as part of daily life.
