The Nutrition and Physical Activity Program aims to reduce the prevalence of obesity and other chronic diseases by providing nutrition education and obesity prevention services in Pasadena. Through our various campaigns we encourage the public to increase consumption of healthy foods and beverages, decrease consumption of less healthy foods and beverages, and increase levels of physical activity.
Our goal is to make the healthy choice an easy choice for all residents of Pasadena.
