Measure Up Marion is making it easier for you to live healthier. Whether you’re cooking and eating at home, eating at a restaurant, a concession stand, or even the vending machine at work, Measure Up Marion offers facts and ideas to help you make healthier steps. Our partners also work with businesses and organizations to provide more tobacco free areas to limit your exposure to secondhand smoke.

Every step helps moves us towards a healthier life. Now we’d like to know What’s Your Step? From eating better, to exercising to learning about your health, every step counts.

Share with us what you’re doing to make life healthier for you and those around you. And who knows, we may even share your story to help inspire others. What’s Your Step?

Healthy Step Examples:

“We ask for less cheese on our family pizza.”

“I only drink soda occasionally and get plenty of water.”

“Our dinners are more balanced now with more grains and vegetables.”

“I ask for healthy alternatives or substitutes at restaurants.”

“I’ve been avoiding the salty and sugary snacks at work.”
