Ticker Tom Provincial Program
The Go Healthy with Ticker Tom Program is a fun and interactive program designed to get healthy living messages to children and youth ages 6 – 12 enrolled in summer recreation programs. The goal of the program is to create awareness in children and youth of the key healthy living messages: eat healthy, be active, and stay smoke-free. The program is put into action with the help of Ticker Tom… a cat with some cool healthy living messages to share!

The Ticker Tom program can be integrated into your schedule in many different ways:
  • A Ticker Tom activity can be organized each day, once a week, or can be spontaneously added where it fits best
  • A theme week could be designated as Ticker Tom's Wellness Week
  • Each week could have one theme day based on Ticker Tom's healthy living messages: healthy eating, active living, and staying smoke-free
  • A celebration could be planned at the end of each week to celebrate what the children and youth have learned about healthy living
  • Ticker Tom's healthy living messages and activities could be incorporated throughout the entire summer recreation program.
