The Movement

Eat Smart, Move More North Carolina Movement

Welcome to Eat Smart, Move More North Carolina, a statewide movement that promotes increased opportunities for healthy eating and physical activity wherever people live, learn, earn, play and pray.

We work to help communities, schools and businesses make it easy for people to eat healthy food and be physically active. We also encourage individuals to think differently about what they eat and how much they move, and to make choices that will help them feel good and live better.

Eat Smart, Move More NC is guided by the work of the Eat Smart, Move More NC Leadership Team, a multi-disciplinary team composed of statewide partners working together to increase opportunities for healthy eating and physical activity.

Vision

A North Carolina where healthy eating and active living are the norm, rather than the exception.

Mission

To reverse the rising tide of obesity and chronic disease among North Carolinians by helping them to eat smart, move more and achieve a healthy weight.
