Healthy Kids Community Challenge

Policy Review

As a part of the Water Does Wonders theme, a review of healthier food and beverage programs, policies, and supports was undertaken in the fall of 2016 to guide local recommendations that will support program planning for the Healthy Kids Community Challenge and its community partners.

Across Hastings and Prince Edward Counties (HPEC), 262 eligible parents or guardians and 70 stakeholders were surveyed, while 24 participants took part in focus group discussions. Public feedback was combined with a review of best and promising practices to inform recommendations by sector.

Thank-you to those who participated in our surveys and focus groups!



Results from the program and policy review are now available! Please refer to the full report and supporting documents listed here:
