Healthy Start is a comprehensive, evidence-based program for increasing healthy eating and physical activity opportunities in early learning environments. This bilingual initiative was developed in Saskatchewan by a group of partners led by the Réseau Santé en français de la Saskatchewan (Saskatchewan Network for Health Services in French), a non-profit, community-based organization located in Saskatoon.
To expand the program beyond Saskatchewan, the Réseau Santé en français de la Saskatchewan (RSFS) collaborated with partners in New Brunswick, including the New Brunswick Gymnastic Association. Together with partners at the University of Moncton, they adapted Healthy Start to an existing early years physical activity program called Active Kids Toolkit. The result was Healthy Start for Active Kids, which combines elements from both programs. For more information on Healthy Start for Active Kids, please go to “What is Healthy Start for Active Kids?” in the FAQ section.
Healthy Start continues to be delivered by RSFS staff, as well a Healthy Start for Active Kids coordinator in New Brunswick.
