A partnership with the YMCA of Northeast Louisiana, the Ouachita Parish Police Jury,
Ouachita Parish School Board, and the cities of Monroe & West Monroe. Our mission
is to reduce obesity in the parish by encouraging physical activity and better eating
habits. The project compliments the YMCA's national 5210 program. The strategies
being encouraged are known to have a positive impact on obesity levels.
Do your children consume sugary drinks and snacks on a daily basis? If so, they could
be consuming thousands of empty nutritional calories each week. Help them to reach
and maintain a healthy weight by reserving those sweet treats for special occasions
or use them as rewards. Lets all be Ouachita Well. Watch the Reducing Sugary Sweetened
Beverages video below.
