About Eat Smart, Move More Orange County

Eat Smart, Move More Orange County promotes increased opportunities for healthy eating and physical activity where people live, learn, earn, play, and pray. Healthy Carolinians of Orange County launched Eat Smart, Move More Orange County to reduce the growing problem of family obesity. The campaign uses messages and materials from the statewide Eat Smart, Move More North Carolina campaign to deliver consistent nutrition and physical activity messages in our community. Several organizations in the county have pledged to help residents (individuals and families) think differently about what they eat and how much they move using the following messages:

  1. Enjoy More Fruits and Vegetables

  2. Right-Size Your Portions

  3. Tame the Tube and Get Moving
  4. Choose to Move More Every Day
  5. Re-Think Your Drink
  6. Prepare More Meals at Home
