We Are Team Inyo for Healthy Kids

Team Inyo, established in April 2010, is a collaborative of many different agencies and community members working to address childhood obesity in Inyo County.

Our mission is to work with the community and families to prevent and reduce childhood obesity by promoting healthy eating and active living.

One of Team Inyo’s ongoing initiatives is to promote the Live Outside the Box campaign to encourage families to limit television and computer screen time and choose more active options.

What We Do…

Team Inyo promotes active lifestyles among parents and children through community education and events such as Walk to School Day as one strategy to prevent childhood obesity. This strategy carries the added benefit of promoting family cohesion and mental health.
Team Inyo promotes balanced nutrition through healthy taste testing, nutrition education classes, sharing healthy recipes, and connecting families to resources such as the CalFresh and WIC programs.
Team Inyo’s vision for a healthy community is one in which the healthy choice is the easy choice for families. Through partnerships and collaboration, Team Inyo strives to make the local environment healthier.
