Parent Survey

Parents, you can win one of ten $20 Walmart Gift Cards by completing our online parent survey. The City of Brantford and the County of Brant in partnership with the Brant County Helath Unit are conducting this survey to better understand the impacts of the Healthy Kids program. Results of the survey will help inform future projects and activities for the Health Kids Brantford-Brant community.  If you are a parent and have a child or children 14 years of age or younger, we would appreciate you taking the time to complete the online survey. The survey should take no more than 15 minutes to complete. 

Run. Jump. Play. Everyday!

We want all children to enjoy play, sports, and physical activity.

Water Does Wonders

Let's encourage kids and families to drink water when thirsty instead of sugar-sweetened beverages. It's the natural, healthy, and free choice.

Choose to Boost Veggies and Fruit

Make vegetables and fruits part of our everyday lives. Whether fresh, frozen, or canned, fruits and vegetables help provide children and families with the vitamins, minerals, dietary fibre, and overall energy needed to be physically active.

Power off and Play!

Power off devices before sleep, during meal and snack time, and encourage plenty of physical activity, social interaction, family time, and fun. Let's help children and families to build a balanced day not filled with screen time.

The Coordinated Youth Services Strategy

A vibrant, youth-friendly community is a place where young people are engaged, have strong connections with friends, family and resources, and many options to thrive. The Together for Youth Strategy provides a framework for the City of Brantford to continue to collaborate with community partners to support youth and youth agencies.

In 2017, the City of Brantford was awarded the designation of a “Youth-Friendly Community” by PlayWorks – the Ontario Partnership for Active and Engaged Youth.
