New Orleans is a Let's Move! City, part of First Lady Michelle Obama's childhood obesity reduction initiative. The City of New Orleans Health Department is leading an effort designed to shape a shared vision for our own city as it addresses obesity, one of its major public health challenges.
In 2018, New Orleans will celebrate its 300th anniversary by becoming a top ten fittest city in the United States.
To achieve this goal, New Orleanians will all need to contribute. Businesses, schools, health care and government will need to commit to healthier food and physical activity choices where we all live, learn, work and play. And every New Orleanian will need to commit to being more nutritionally and physically fit.
Together we can turn the tide to win the battle against obesity and create a more fit city.
