The Be Better campaign is part of an ongoing effort to improve the health of families and communities, especially those that are at greater risk of obesity, high blood pressure, and type 2 diabetes. Be Better was created to inspire and motivate individuals and families to adopt small changes for a healthier tomorrow through a simple message: “You don’t have to be perfect, just be better.”
