About Take TIME
Take TIME for Your Child’s Health is a health promotion campaign for parents and caregivers of young children, up to 8 years of age. The campaign emphasizes the importance of TIME – Tobacco free, Injury free, Moving daily, Eating healthy. The goal is to create, in the Township of Uxbridge, the ideal community for supporting active healthy lifestyles for young children.
The Take TIME campaign has many aspects, as recommended by the project partner organizations and parents and caregivers of young children in Uxbridge. Free, fun, family activities will provide physical activity opportunities twice per month. Project partners are working to develop guidelines to enhance the healthy environments and programmes that they provide.
The Take TIME campaign will also educate parents and caregivers about ways to enhance the health of young children via easy changes to daily routines that require only a few minutes to complete.
Through the Take TIME campaign we hope to increase the proportion of young children in Uxbridge who are Tobacco free (no passive exposure) and Injury free by 5%, and the proportion of children who are Moving daily (physically active) and Eating healthy by 10%.
The goal is to create, in the Township of Uxbridge, the ideal community for supporting active healthy lifestyles for young children.
