With childhood illnesses and obesity on the rise locally and throughout our nation, it is vital that our youngest generation makes the connection between what they eat each day and their health. Through Healthy Kids, PCC is rallying children, parents, schools and our community to help cultivate a healthy future for the next generation. We believe this can be achieved through awareness, education and, of course, consumption and enjoyment of healthier food choices.
