Join and engage in the initiative to support children and families build healthier communities.
Through shared values, the Let's Eat Healthy Initiative elevates the health of children and families through the pursuit of lifelong healthy eating habits.
The Let’s Eat Healthy Initiative Strategic Framework outlines objectives and action steps to engage stakeholders in advancing collaboration in the initiative through multidisciplinary action and advocacy.
Registered dietitian Cesar Sauza is Clinical Nutrition Manager at AltaMed Health Services in Los Angeles, California. For many years Cesar worked with the pediatric weight management program providing
nutrition interventions to families and contributing to the curriculum development. In this program, families were taught how to introduce a variety of healthier foods to form long-term habits rather than taking a dieting approach. Cesar and his team
of dietitians continue to provide nutrition intervention to pediatric patients of all ages with various conditions. All his experience has been in communities with a predominately underserved population. He believes in improving the health of these
communities through the power of food. Cesar shared:
Nutrition education to our youth is crucial in the prevention of preventable future health issues, rather than focusing on restriction and avoidance we should be encouraging whole foods and movement.
Let’s Eat Healthy campaigns include resources to help you organize, promote and celebrate nutrition themes within your school or community. Celebrate today!
