Let's Move

Let’s Move! Cities, Towns, and Counties (LMCTC) is part of a National Let’s Move! Initiative that works toward solving childhood obesity within a generation, so that children born today will grow up healthier and able to pursue their dreams. LMCTC encourages and supports local elected officials to adopt long-term, sustainable, and holistic approaches to address the problem of childhood obesity. LMCTC is voluntary and Local elected officials who sign up as an LMCTC site are willing to commit to five goals:

  • Goal 1:  Start Early, Start Smart
  • Goal 2:  MyPlate, Your Place
  • Goal 3:  Smart Servings for Students
  • Goal 4:  Model Food Service
  • Goal 5:  Active Kids at Play

The five goals were created with the role of local elected officials in mind and leverage existing federal initiatives. The goals are achievable, measurable, and designed to promote sustainable strategies intended to improve the health of communities. In addition, LMCTC sites have the opportunity to earn national recognition at the gold, silver and bronze levels as they proceed in accomplishing the five goals and building healthier environments for children to thrive.
