National Public Health Week

NEW CITY – As part of National Public Health Week, Rockland County Executive Ed Day and County Health Commissioner Dr. Patricia Schnabel Ruppert want you to know steps you and your family can take to continue supporting Rockland in being one of the healthiest counties in NYS. The facts are clear that there is a direct link between poor nutrition and many of the leading causes of death in America. Healthy eating is important at any age, especially children and teens. Nearly one in three kids in America are either overweight or obese and at risk of developing chronic disease. Most don’t eat enough fruits, vegetables or whole grains, and many take in too much sodium and sugar. The Health Department has been promoting programs that encourage local stores to carry healthier choices, better food choices at schools, and encouraging families to eat healthier together as well as funding local CSA’s and community gardens so you can access local produce. You can find more information about what you and your family can do about eating healthier at www.rocklandgov.com/health.
