The county Public Health Department received more than $300,000 to help slim the county’s children and fight an obesity “epidemic.”

The grant money will go toward programs already identified in 2006 by the Childhood Obesity Prevention Task Force. In addition to funding some of the task force’s 184 recommendations, grant money will also be used to enhance student wellness policies in the county’s school districts, develop programs in high-risk communities, and benefit the HEAL-SLO (Healthy Eating Active Living) Coalition.
