Healthy Eating Active Living Program


The Healthy Eating Active Living Program (HEAL) strives to reduce the burden of obesity and chronic disease and increase the proportion of Washingtonians with a healthy weight. We work on equitable and sustainable solutions to improve nutrition, increase physical activity, and support breastfeeding in early learning, schools, communities, worksites, healthcare and faith-based settings.

HEAL builds a healthier Washington through policy, systems and environmental changes that make it easier for people to eat healthy and be active—wherever they are. Evidence shows that people are more likely to make healthy choices when organizations, communities, and social structures support them. We target resources to underserved communities and populations with higher rates of obesity, food insecurity, poor nutrition and poor physical activity.
