Healthy Kingsport

Healthy Kingsport is a coalition of community partners whose mission is “to create a community culture of healthy living by promoting awareness, influencing policy, and enhancing infrastructure.” Improving your health benefits you physically, emotionally and financially. The measure of a healthy community is the health of each individual member of that community. It’s our fervent hope that every person in our region begins to take “Small Starts” towards a healthier life style. Small starts can lead to amazing changes in your health.

Unlike sugar-sweetened beverages, 100% fruit juice has no added sugar. 100% fruit juice contains natural fruit sugars along with vitamins, minerals and plant nutrients. Squeeze more fruit into your day: just 4 ounces of 100% fruit juice counts as one serving, or ½ cup, of fruit!
