Plantation was selected as one of 7 cities, along with Broward County, to be recognized as a 2015 Healthy Weight Community Champion! We applied for the recognition through the Florida Department of Health’s “Healthiest Weight Florida” initiative.
“Healthiest Weight Florida” is a public-private collaboration bringing together state agencies, not-for-profit organizations, businesses and communities to help Florida’s children and adults make consistent, informed choices about healthy eating and active living.
Between August and December, local governments were invited to submit best practice policies they have implemented in their jurisdictions. The Florida Department of Health is recognizing 65 communities throughout Florida, which is up from 38 last year.
Other cities in Broward County that were recognized are: Coconut Creek, Deerfield Beach, Ft. Lauderdale, Oakland Park, Weston and Pembroke Park.
