    The Hispanic Health Council, Inc. of Hartford is among the winners of the "Let's Move!" Communities on the Move Video Challenge First Lady Michelle Obama announced last month.

    The Hispanic Health Council, Inc. created "Puppets & Peers …..On the Move!," a video that focuses on prevention of childhood obesity through healthy eating, physical activity and access to affordable healthy foods.

    The video covers a pre-school program, as well as the breastfeeding: heritage and pride peer counseling program, which encourages breastfeeding and provides support for low-income women.

    The first prize winner was a church in Florida. Other winners come from California, Colorado, New York, Pennsylvania and Tennessee.
