I’m sure you’ve heard “an apple a day keeps the doctor away.”  Have you heard that it’s easier to buy a beer in Allen County than it is to buy an apple?

Eating healthy food doesn’t just depend on what we want to eat. It also depends on what we have access to.  Employees have a hard time snacking on healthy food if they are surrounded by candy jars/vending machines. Children can’t eat healthy food at home if parents don’t buy it.  And it’s hard to buy fruits and vegetables if the store near you doesn’t stock them. I invite you to explore activities related to healthy eating powered by Allen County Public Health, as well as the healthy menu challenge and other activities powered by Activate Allen County . How can you get involved in making healthy food choices easier in Allen County?

Yours in good health,

Kathy Luhn, Allen County Health Commissioner
