Current Campaign: AZ Health Zone
AZ Health Zone serves as the overarching theme for all of the 2010-2015 Nutrition Campaigns.
About the AZ Health Zone Campaign
In cooperation with our public and private partners, we are charged with improving the nutritional status of Arizonans who are eligible to receive Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits through the use of effective social marketing and community education. AZ Health Zone is a valuable tool branding the Network's message along with the three campaigns slated for 2010-2015. The AZ Health Zone logo will be featured consistently and in tandem with all of the following campaigns.
We encourage our AZ Health Zone partners to now only use the AZ Health Zone logo. Feel free to visit the Logos and Graphics page to obtain various formats of the new logo for use on all of your program materials.

Thanks for being a Champion for Change!Meet Champion Mom Anna
Anna made healthy changes because her family is important to her. As a family they eat together, Anna's kids learn about choosing a wide variety of healthy foods while communicating as a family.
One of the things I like to do during our family meals is teach my son how to serve himself so that he can learn good portion sizes and learn to become more independent. He likes to do things on his own now, and serving himself would be another important achievement in growing up.
Be a Champion for Change in your household.
Remember that making small changes can add up to big wins!

Mealtime is Family Time
Make family meals and memories together. It takes a little work to bring everyone together for meals, but it's worth it and the whole family eats better. It's a lesson your children will use for life.
Fat-free or low-fat (1%) dairy foods are packed with beneficial vitamins and minerals without all the fat. Switching to fat-free or low-fat (1%) dairy foods helps maintain healthy blood pressure, manage weight, and build better bones.
