Healthy Shasta envisions communities where people walk and bike more, are frequently physically active as a family, value healthy food, and eat more fruits and vegetables. Below are some samples of our media efforts aimed at achieving these goals by raising awareness and encouraging healthy behaviors.

Kohl’s Cares for Kids

Kohl’s believes in giving back to the communities they serve. Through their community giving and volunteer program, they support kids' health and education initiatives in communities nationwide. Since 2009, the local Kohl’s Cares funding has been awarded to Mercy Medical Center which generously confers the funds to Healthy Shasta to use for media efforts which encourage healthy, active lifestyles.

This is one food fight you really need to win.
Getting your kids to eat healthy isn't always easy, but it's worth it. Eating more fruits and vegetables and getting 30-60 minutes of physical activity on most days of the week can help prevent obesity-related diseases like type 2 diabetes...

All in favor of healthy kids... walk this way.
It's true, small steps make a huge difference! Walking at least 30 minutes a day improves health, increases energy and even makes you feel good. And if done as a family, actually increases the chance of talking with your kids. So take a step in a healthy direction...

Let's all be action heroes.
Did you know that horsing around with your children outside does a world of good inside? It improves energy, makes you feel good, and along with eating fruits and vegetables, can reduce the risk of diabetes and high blood pressure. So be an action hero with your kids. Get out and play for at least 30 minutes a day...
