Waupaca County Nutrition and Activity Coalition (NuAct)

NuAct Mission is to enhance the health of our children and families through improved nutritional choices and increased physical activities.

NuAct was formed in May 2003 after childhood health, nutrition and inactivity surfaced as a major health concern in Waupaca County. It is the belief of our coalition that the best way to approach the complex issue of childhood overweight is to create environments that promote healthy eating and physically active lifestyles. Community collaboration is essential to effecting positive and sustainable change. Efforts that have been initiated and supported by NuAct include;  Environmental Youth Connections, Farm to School, Gardening, School Wellness-Children Health,and Working on Wellness.

NuAct Vision is that our community environments will promote and support healthy lifestyles.
