The Mid North Coast Childhood Obesity Regional Prevention and Management Action Plan (July 2018 – June 2023) was initiated during the Regional Childhood Obesity Summit in November 2017, where a range of strategies were developed by representatives from partner organisations.
ACTION PLAN LAUNCH
The Parliamentary Secretary for Regional and Rural Health and Member for Port Macquarie Leslie Williams joined NSW Chief Health Officer Dr Kerry Chant and representatives of Healthy Communities Mid North Coast in launching the MNC Childhood Obesity Regional Action Plan on Friday 1 June at Port Macquarie Indoor Stadium.
The launch was a hive of activity with almost 80 people in attendance including 20 children, young people and their families. Local high school children from the Clontarf program participated in a Go4Fun demonstration, and toddlers won over the crowd as they participated in a demonstration by Rugby Tots.
