Our Community

Our friendly, professional staff work hard every day to protect you, prevent disease, and promote public health in our community.

We travel to local child care centers to teach children about nutrition.

We talk to children about the different food groups, and listen to the kids share about the foods they like to eat.

Our staff encourage children to "eat a rainbow" of fresh fruits and vegetables every day, and to limit the number of sweets and fatty foods they eat.

Research shows that eating a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables helps maintain a balanced diet and reduces the risk of obesity. Our nutrition outreach efforts are helping children in Phelps County fight obesity by developing healthy eating habits.

Working every day to improve public health in our community — caring for your family, caring for our community, caring for YOU!
