    To mark World Health Day the Minister of Health has announced the expansion of APPLE Schools into rural Alberta, Manitoba and the Northwest Territories. With one in three Canadian children overweight or obese, teaching kids about healthy living is more important than ever. It can also help to reduce their risks for chronic diseases such as Type 2 diabetes, which is this year’s theme for World Health Day. APPLE Schools has already reached 16,500 children and as a result, kids in the program eat more fruit and vegetables, are 35% more active and 40% less likely to be overweight or obese.

    Did you know diabetes affects 422 million people worldwide? Today on World Health Day we unite against the rise of diabetes, a chronic disease that the WHO predicts will be the 7th leading cause of death by 2030. Although some types of diabetes can’t be prevented, Type 2 can. By eating healthy, managing your weight and blood pressure, and exercising regularly you can reduce your type two risk significantly. Are you aware of your risk? Take the test here: http://ow.ly/10oNS7

    Did you know the average office worker spends 65-75% of their day sitting? While this sedentary behaviour can increase the risk of developing chronic diseases, workplace physical activity initiatives have been proven to increase productivity and job performance, reduce turnover and improve employee satisfaction and loyalty. This is why we’re proud to announce the launch of UPnGO with ParticipACTION - a new workplace physical activity program that helps office workers get moving throughout their workdays.
