Healthy Kids Community Challenge


It takes a village...

The Healthy Kids Community Challenge is Ontario's new drive to support the health of our children. The City of Temiskaming Shores has been chosen to be a part of it. That means new ideas and programs are coming to our community - things that make it easier for children to be active and eat healthier. These are key components to good health through adulthood.

Let's make the healthy choice.

Water is the natural choice for our kids to stay healthy and hydrated. It is essential to keep their bodies working and growing properly. With water, there's no need to worry about sugar, calories, additives, preservatives, or caffeine. Let's get our kids drinking more water and see how it really does wonders.
