Korikori tinana me te Oranga Kai

Health promoter with fruit and vegetables
Public Health wants to encourage an environment where people eat healthy food and enjoy physically active lives. We’re trying to make the healthy choice the easy choice.
 
Everyone needs to be active and eat well (more fruit and vegetables and less sugar and fat) to maintain a healthy lifestyle. It increases your quality of life and your sense of wellbeing.
 
Public Health offers:
• Supporting the development of veggie hubs to improve access to cheaper and fresh vegetables
• Encouraging greater physical activity through supporting Bikes In Schools in Palmerston North
• Encouraging Councils to promote healthy drinks (sugar-free)
