Waukesha County

 

Welcome to Live Well Waukesha County!

 

The 2018 Community Health Improvement Plan and Process (CHIPP) survey found that 70% of adult residents in Waukesha County are overweight or obese, and less than half of them meet recommended nutrition and physical activity goals. Live Well Waukesha County aims to address both of these issues through programming offered through our new "Eat Well" and "Move Well" programs. The overall goals are to:

  • Increase the percent of adults who consume the recommended 3+ vegetables/day from 25% to 30% by the end of 2021
  • Increase the percent of adults who meet the recommended moderate or vigorous activity levels from
    46% to 50% by the end of 2021
  • Reduce the percent of adults who are overweight or obese with a BMI of 25+ from 70+% to 68% by the end of 2021

Eat Well

Eating a diet rich in vegetables and fruits as part of an overall healthy diet may reduce risk for heart disease, reduce your risk of certain types of cancer, and prevent type 2 diabetes in adults. Vegetables and fruits provide nutrients vital for health and maintenance of your body. Most adults live a busy lifestyle and find it hard to get the recommended amount of fruits and vegetables per day. The goal of this initiative is to introduce you to healthy produce options and give you some recipes to make it easy to incorporate this produce at home! 

Harvest of the Month

 

What is Harvest of the Month?
Harvest of the month highlights a locally available crop each month of the year in school cafeterias, restaurants, workplaces, and grocery stores. The program expands across Waukesha, Washington & Ozaukee counties to help children, caregivers, and the broader community learn more about healthy, seasonal, whole-foods eating.
