Healthy Eating, Active Living: HEAL Idaho
The goal of the HEAL framework includes creating an environment where all Idahoans value and have access to healthy food options as well as opportunities to be physically active to improve their health and wellbeing.
Learn How to Eat Well with Choose My Plate, a tool to help guide you on how much of what to eat, and also provides information on the amount of physical activity that you need to do to keep you healthy.
