Keeping Pace is designed to help keep Nova Scotians up-to-date on the physical activity and eating habits of Nova Scotia’s young people.
Keeping Pace is based on data from the Physical Activity and Dietary Intake of Children and Youth in Nova Scotia (PACY) studies from 2001 and 2005, funded by the Nova Scotia Department of Health and Wellness and the Department of Education. Each issue introduces a new theme, highlighting key findings from the research.
Keeping Pace is for anyone who has influence over the well-being of children and youth in Nova Scotia. These newsletters are reference tools to further inform the planning of initiatives and support efforts to educate and increase awareness.
This research is one initiative of the Active Kids Healthy Kids strategy , which encourages children, youth and families to get the physical activity and nutritious diet they need to live the healthiest lives possible.
We hope you enjoy Keeping Pace and find it informative to your work.
