Congratulations to the city of Fontana and Mayor Acquanetta Warren for their efforts to combat childhood obesity through nutrition education and physical activity.
Yesterday, the United States Conference of Mayors (USCM) and the American Beverage Foundation for a Healthy America (ABFHA) presented Mayor Warren with the Childhood Obesity Prevention Award to support the city’s “Healthy Kids for a Healthy Fontana" program. The program provides hands-on experience to kids in after-school programs to help them learn about selecting different foods and beverages for a balanced lifestyle. The program also offers children the opportunity to try different physical activities.
Initiatives like “Healthy Kids for a Healthy Fontana" will have a long-lasting impact in communities and bring about meaningful results. That is why the beverage industry supports efforts to educate people about balance – it gives them information they need to make decisions that are right for them.
