Active Kids, Healthy Kids is a Canadian Paediatric Society program to help paediatricians, family physicians and other health professionals promote physical activity, nutrition, and other healthy choices.
This section is filled with ideas, resources and evidence to help you incorporate messages about healthy active living into your practice. Use the sidebar at the right to find your way around or start with the age-based pages using the links below.
The CPS has also developed age-based teaching modules for use with paediatric and family medicine residents, or other audiences. These slide presentations are available only to CPS members. Visit our Member Centre to access the PowerPoints.
