Healthy Kids Community Challenge

Healthy Kids Community Challenge (HKCC) is a province-wide initiative funded by the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care (MOHLTC) intended to create sustainable improvements for children and youth in three theme areas: healthy eating, healthy physical activity and healthy lifestyle for children and youth. The target age for this Provincial initiative is 12 years and under.

Understanding Your Exercise Intensity

Regular physical activity is imperative for maintaining good health and well-being. For the benefits to take effect, the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology recommends that youth aged 12-17 years old should accumulate at least 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous intensity physical activity daily.
