Last week we shared news about the first place winners of the 2014 Childhood Obesity Prevention Awards in the small and medium city categories.

Today, we want to highlight and congratulate Denver, Colo., Mayor Michael Hancock for his “Healthy Childcare Makes a Healthy Start” initiative, which increases the number of Denver’s more than 600 childcare centers that incorporate evidence-based healthy eating and active living (HEAL) policies and activities into everyday operations. With this initiative, Denver took home first place in the large city category!

Make sure you check out this video highlighting Denver’s innovative program. Congratulations, Mayor Hancock!
